CORT VANOSTRAN ENDS Q2 WITH $540,000 CASH ON HAND IN RACE FOR MISSOURI’S SECOND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

VanOstran continues to shatter fundraising records in the race against Republican incumbent Ann Wagner

Webster Groves, MO. – Democratic congressional candidate Cort VanOstran raised over $300,000 in the second quarter of 2018, again breaking fundraising records for Democrats running in Missouri’s Second Congressional District. His campaign finished the second quarter of 2018 with more than $830,000 in total contributions and more than $540,000 in cash on hand. After three record-breaking quarters and outraising every Democratic challenger since Rep. Ann Wagner’s election in 2012, VanOstran’s grassroots fundraising is signaling the strongest challenge ever to Congresswoman Wagner.

“I am overwhelmed and grateful for the support of this grassroots campaign,” VanOstran said. “While Rep. Ann Wagner vies for the financial support of corporate PAC money, this campaign’s message has one focus: the people of this district. Voters have sent a strong message: the Second District is ready to fire Ann Wager. A new generation of leadership, one that fights for affordable, quality healthcare for all, stands with union workers, and shows up for this community, is coming this November.”

VanOstran, who is endorsed by End Citizens United, is committed to rejecting corporate PAC contributions. A sign of the hunger for change, VanOstran has received more than 3,300 individual contributions, the majority of which were for 100 dollars or less.

VanOstran is a lawyer in St. Louis and a lecturer at Washington University School of Law. He lost his mother to cancer in 2016, and was motivated to run for Congress after watching Rep. Ann Wagner vote to cut healthcare coverage from millions of families just like his.
