Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Gade, PhD., announced today that his campaign exceeded its $100,000 quarterly fundraising goal in just six weeks. In total, the campaign raised over $138,000 from 430 individual contributions.

“I am humbled by the level of the support I have received in such a short amount of time,“ stated Gade. “Every dollar was hard-earned and we will use them to make a change for Virginia. We had over 300 donors who contributed less than $200. This is a reflection of the grassroots support we are building around the Commonwealth. Virginians know that DC does not need any more career politicians.”

“I am not a career politician. Since I was seventeen, I have served the American people, and I look forward to serving Virginia in the US Senate. I will fight for Virginia with the same oath, but on a new mission. I am running for the US Senate because our freedoms are still worth fighting for.”

Senior campaign advisor and former National Field Director for President Trump’s 2016 campaign, Stuart Jolly stated, “The voters in Virginia want and deserve a principled leader to be their next U.S. Senator. Daniel has raised a stunning amount in his first few weeks, and Virginians should get to know him. His story of service is truly amazing.

He is a faithful warrior who served and sacrificed for our country for over 20 years, and voters will be able to trust him
when they send him to the Senate.”
