Release: Democratic Candidate for Governor Aaron Lieberman Raises More Than $1.16 Million

Breaks AZ record for Democratic gubernatorial candidate at this point in election cycle

PHOENIX, AZ - The Lieberman for Governor campaign has raised more than $1.16 million as it enters election year 2022. This figure is nearly double what any previous Democratic candidate for governor has raised at a similar point in the race. 

“This is a record-breaking amount raised by a Democrat running for governor in Arizona,”  said Miguel Medrano, Lieberman’s Campaign Manager, “Arizonans are responding to Aaron’s positive message of bringing people together to get big things done. It’s clear that Democrats around the state know how important it is to nominate someone who can beat Kari Lake, and they are increasingly seeing Aaron as the strongest nominee.”

“I am encouraged by Aaron’s strong support from individuals and business leaders,” said Adam Goodman, the campaign’s finance chair. “With the extremist Kari Lake surging on the Republican side, and Secretary Hobbs struggling with a racial discrimination verdict, Aaron is the Democrat who can win in November, and keep Arizona on track to continue to lead the nation in job growth while increasing our investment in our public schools.”

“I am so grateful for all the support of so many Arizonans, from all across the state, who believe in this campaign enough to contribute financially,” said Aaron Lieberman,  “In December alone the campaign raised over $350,000, including $65,000 raised on December 31st alone. Our campaign surged toward the end of the year, and I think that speaks to the growing enthusiasm from Arizonans who are focused on nominating a Democratic candidate who can win in November.”  concluded Lieberman.

These numbers are especially significant considering Lieberman announced his run for governor months after his opponents in July of 2021.
