RELEASE: RELEASE: Dr. Scott Jensen Raises $1.23 Million in Gubernatorial Bid, with Over $800,000 Cash on Hand
CHASKA, Minn. — Dr. Scott Jensen has finalized a campaign finance report reflecting his campaign fundraising and expense activity during 2021. That report will become public this month and will show a staggering movement supporting his candidacy to be Minnesota’s next governor. The Dr. Scott Jensen for Governor Committee has raised $1.23 Million and has over $800,000 cash on hand.
This is an unprecedented number, generated by a groundswell of support from every-day Minnesotans: homemakers, police officers, medical professionals, laborers, teachers, miners, farmers, and so many more. The fundraising number breaks Tim Walz’s record for a non-incumbent candidate in an off-year. Republicans have not come near this number in the past.
According to a recent newsletter from Blois Olson:
“At this point in previous campaigns, former leading Republican candidates for Governor had raised the following:
2009 Marty Seifert for Governor – $255,272
2009 Tom Emmer for Governor – $98,466
2013 Jeff Johnson for Governor – $242,689
2013 Marty Seifert for Governor – $150,151
2013 Dave Thompson for Governor – $124,648
2013 Scott Honor for Governor – $596,680 (includes a $100K loan)
2013 Kurt Zellers for Governor – $402,600
2017 Jeff Johnson for Governor – $258,992″
2021 Dr. Scott Jensen for Governor – $1,234,282
Over 90% of Dr. Jensen’s donors come from within the state of Minnesota and the vast majority are individual, small-dollar donations. He is truly a candidate FOR THE PEOPLE who can invigorate the whole state and help make Tim Walz a one-term governor.
Dr. Jensen’s vision for Minnesota has resonated far and wide throughout the state: SAFETY in our streets, SCIENCE (NOT POLITICAL SCIENCE) leading our decision making, STUDENTS being prioritized over broken institutions and political indoctrination, and SECURE ELECTIONS to make Minnesota a place where it’s easy to vote but hard to cheat!
Dr. Jensen says of the record fundraising haul, “We have travelled Minnesota and made the case that Tim Walz has failed our state and must be replaced. We’ve led on the issues and have paved new trails which Republicans have historically not touched. I believe our campaign is best positioned to win in November because we’ve not relied on the old political guard or money from corporate special interests. We’ve gone to the people of Minnesota and they are responding in force. I am both blown away and humbled by the support I’ve received from Minnesotans!”
Dr. Scott Jensen will continue an intense travel and calling schedule in an effort to activate those who have been greatly harmed by the far-left policies of Tim Walz and his administration. The people have spoken with their dollars for the time being – and they will speak even louder at the ballot box in November.
