Ilhan Omar raises $1.1 million in third quarter

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) raised $1.1 million for her reelection bid in the past three months, her campaign said on Monday.

The third-quarter haul is nearly double the roughly $617,000 she raised in the second quarter of the year. More than 55,500 individuals gave to Omar’s campaign over the past three months, with an average donation size of $14.55, according to her team.

The vast majority of contributions to Omar’s campaign were made online, and 99.8 percent were under $200, her campaign said.

“For too long, Washington has catered to lobbyists and special interests, rather than the American people,” Omar said in a statement.
