"I am very proud and grateful for the tremendous effort that so many supporters from every corner of the Commonwealth put forward in this petition effort. We could not have achieved this significant milestone without their help and support. This was an incredible effort of grassroots and organization that is indicative of the strong momentum we have going forward," said Jon Bowerbank.I am proud to be a part of this effort and look forward to having a primary that discusses the issues that are important to Virginians.
This record achievement marks the second major milestone that Bowerbank has reported this week, having reported earlier that his campaign has $425,000 cash on hand, more than any other Lieutenant Governor candidate's campaign. This cash on hand amount is also significant given that it is four times more than the $107,000 that Democratic Lieutenant Governor primary winner and former Congresswoman Leslie Byrne reported at the same period in 2005.
