Unlike Ly, Stafford’s 2017 contributions mostly came from individuals who donated amounts totaling less than $1,000. Many of those contributions were one-time $100 donations.
Stafford expressed pride in the campaign she is running.
“I’m extremely proud of my people-driven campaign, which consisted of primarily individual donations,” she said. “We are in the process of building our professional team and fully expect the campaign to surpass all expectations in terms of finances and beyond.”
