Los Angeles – New financial reports show Marshall Tuck’s campaign to renew the promise of public education is building strong grassroots support– substantially outpacing his opponent in the race for State Superintendent.
Tuck, a public school leader, raised more than twice as much as his opponent this fundraising period, bringing in $1.2 million from over 1,100 people. Unlike his opponent, Tuck has not taken any money from PACs or companies.
Tuck’s strong first fundraising period outpaces any State Superintendent candidate in recent history.
83% of Tuck’s donors contributed $500 or less, and a majority gave less than $100, demonstrating the grassroots momentum behind the campaign.
Tuck issued the following statement:
“Our campaign is about bringing Californians together to tackle the big challenges facing our public schools. California doesn’t shrink from big problems– we solve them. We know what it takes to educate our children. Now we need the political courage to do it.
“I’m humbled by our early support, and fired up to keep growing our grassroots movement to bring big changes to California’s schools, and renew the promise of public education for all students.”
