Peters’ campaign raised $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, his largest haul of the cycle so far. The campaign also boasted $8 million in cash-on-hand, setting a Michigan Senate record for the end of an off-year.
Less than half an hour after Peters posted his fourth-quarter numbers, James’ campaign celebrated their own cash pile. James’ campaign said it picked up $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, out-raising Peters by $1 million.
Peters raised $9.3 million since the beginning of 2019, while James raised nearly $8 million last year, the two campaigns said.
James campaign spokesperson Abby Walls said the numbers demonstrate growing enthusiasm for the Farmington Hills businessman and U.S. Army veteran. James already scored endorsements from the Michigan Republican Party and Vice President Mike Pence.
