Tulsi Makes Her $1 Million Warchest Today
Today, Tulsi will reach her $1 million campaign warchest goal for "keeping competitive" with the rest of the Democratic candidates in the early primary/caucus states. As of right now here is the total:
She will be using this for television and digital ad buys, as well as other forms of media--including her traditional billboards. Her stated goal was to make that amount by the end of this year.
It is expected that she will spend the majority of this money in New Hampshire and South Carolina, where she has been rising in the polls lately, and where there is some evidence for a significant percentage of undecided voters yet. In one of the most recent New Hampshire polls, Tulsi got 6.2% of the votes, and in that same poll a full 22% of voters were undecided. Her goal is to convince as many of those undecideds as possible to support her in order to get to the 15% threshold for gaining actual state delegates.
A tall order, for sure--but you may have noticed that Tulsi is particularly persistent.
Tulsi has been campaigning in New Hampshire for the past few days, and has events scheduled in New Hampshire just about every day from today through January 8th. She really wants to win that state!!!
She'll now have the money to make more of an impact. February 11 is the primary date for that state.
