Kim falls short of fundraising goal

Campaign e-mail says freshman congressman didn’t hit his numbers

By David Wildstein, March 18 2019 12:11 pm

Rep. Andy Kim (D-Marlton) did not make hit his fundraising goals for March, according to an email his campaign sent out today.

Kim fell $1,147 short of what he wanted to raise by mid-March.  An impressive first quarter fundraising total will help him scare off potential Republican challengers.

“We’re not going to lie,” Kim’s campaign said.  “This puts the campaign in a tough spot.”

In an email to supporters yesterday, Kim said he was $2,732 away from being on track with his re-election fundraising.

That means he raised $1,585 on Sunday.

“Falling short of any fundraising goal can have dramatic effects — both for building out our on-the-ground efforts and the signal it sends to decision-makers on our side and the same special interest groups I’m fighting against every day in Congress,” Kim said.

A former Obama White House staffer, Kim narrowly unseated two-term Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River) in the 2018 mid-term election.  He is considered one of the top national Republican targets when he seeks re-election to his 3rd district seat next year.
