When campaign finance reports are filed on Sept. 16th they will show that Mick Staton’s campaign raised over $140,000 in six weeks. This total nearly triples the amount of money raised by Staton’s opponent, Mike Turner, for the entire campaign.
Staton, who previously served on the Board of Supervisors from 2004-2007, entered the race for Ashburn District Supervisor in mid-July when the previous Republican candidate, Rich McMunn, had to withdraw for personal reasons. The Loudoun County Republican Committee unanimously elected the former Supervisor to step into the race.
“We are certainly the underdog in this race because our opponent, Mike Turner, has been running for this seat for five years,” Mick Staton explained. “However, I believe we will win by outworking our opponent and I think the momentum is on our side.”
From July 1st, 2018 until June 30th, 2019 Mike Turner raised just over $51,000 from 110 individual donations. He also reported about $40,000 cash on hand. Since entering the race in late July the Staton campaign raised over $140,000 from over 170 individual donations, and will report over $124,000 cash on hand.
“We are blessed to have so many volunteers who attended our kick-off and are knocking doors,” Staton said. “With hard work and a winning message, I believe we will win on November 5th.”
