State Treasurer Doug Ducey entered the 2014 gubernatorial race with high fundraising expectations, and he certainly hasn’t disappointed.

Ducey announced on Monday that he’d already raised slightly more than $1 million for his exploratory campaign, and has $923,000 on hand. His campaign called the massive fundraising haul an “unprecedented amount” for an exploratory committee in a non-election year.

While political observers expect the well-connected Ducey to put Arizona’s new campaign contribution limits to good use – the limits are now $4,000, up from $912 – most of his contributions were under the old limits, according to the campaign. The campaign said 80 percent of the 1,000 contributors gave less than $1,000, and 40 percent gave less than $500.

Doug Ducey Shows Fundraising Firepower

Raises more than $1 million for exploratory gubernatorial campaign in 2014

PHOENIX (January 6) – Arizona State Treasurer Doug Ducey today announced his exploratory campaign for governor has raised more than $1,050,000 in 2013 – an unprecedented amount for a statewide exploratory committee in a non- election year. He begins the year with $923,000 cash on hand.

“I’m incredibly humbled and grateful for the support shown for my exploratory campaign for governor,” Ducey said. “I’ve traveled to many corners of the state over the last several months and it’s clear that the vision for a stronger Arizona is resonating.

“Arizonans are ready to embrace a stronger economy, brighter education system and a leaner government, and I’m excited and ready to help lead us there.”

Key Points:

  • The majority of funds were raised under the old, lower limits of $912/person and $1,824/couple during the court-imposed stay.
  • There’s substantial room for further fundraising now that maximum limits have been reinstated to $4,000/person and $8,000/couple.
  • Funds were raised by nearly 1,000 individual donors, 80 percent of which were less than $1,000 and 40 percent were $500 or less.
