DeRemer nears one million mark in fundraising

By Oregon Campaign watch,

Congresswoman Lori Chavez-DeRemer is close to securing one million dollars in cash on hand for her PAC by July 15th.

Her press release states:

Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (OR-05) raised over $717,000 in the second quarter of 2023, building on an already highly successful fundraising year. Chavez-DeRemer’s fundraising numbers, sizable for any member of Congress, are particularly impressive as a freshman member of Congress. When Chavez-DeRemer files her quarterly report with the FEC before the July 15th deadline her account will show nearly $1 million on hand, positioning her well for next year’s elections.

“When I started my term in Congress, I made clear to my team and to the people of Oregon that I wanted to hit the ground running,” Chavez-DeRemer said. “I’m proud of what we have been able to accomplish on behalf of Oregon’s 5th District. There is so much important work left yet to be done, and I look forward to continuing to fight for a better future for our state and for this country.”

“As Democrats begin their battle over who is the most extreme Leftist in Oregon 5th Congressional District,” Senior Advisor Nick Trainer said. “Congresswoman Chavez-DeRemer is building a significant war chest for whichever Extremist is unlucky enough to face her next November.”

Chavez-DeRemer was elected to represent Oregon’s 5th District in November 2022 with a strong background in local government. Prior to her election to Congress, she was twice elected mayor of Happy Valley, having also served on Happy Valley City Council and as the council president. She began her public service in 2002 as a member of the Happy Valley Parks Committee. She is the mother of twin daughters and is married to her high school sweetheart, Dr. Shawn DeRemer. Rep. Chavez-DeRemer is one of the first Latinas and the very first Republican woman elected to Congress from Oregon.
