Gov. candidate, Stan Pulliam, hits half million. Outpaces everyone

By Oregon Campaign Watch,

This week, Oregon governor candidate, Stan Pulliam, hit a half million in campaign donations as measured from the most-watched metric of donations from other Oregonians.   This helps measure the level of public support a candidate has among other people. Stan Pulliam is leading and the first to hit a half million among Republican Primary contenders.

Next in the funding race would be doctor and former veteran Bud Pierce at $388,700, writer and former magazine editor Bridget Barton at $350,000 , CEO Jessica Gomez around $150,000 and Baker City Mayor Kerry McQuisten around $50,000.

If you measure all donations, including donations and loans from the candidate themselves and the candidate’s close family, then Oregon governor candidate Bud Pierce would take the lead with close to a million in donations.

Ultimately, Oregon is witnessing a diverse of strong candidates well funded in the race for the 2022 Oregon governor.   This is good news and good fundraising totals so early in the race.
