Lanhee Chen Raises $4 Million
Enters Home Stretch With Strong Cash-On-Hand Position

Mountain View, CA – Lanhee Chen, candidate for California Controller, raised $1.14 million between July 1 and Sept. 24 to bring his overall raise to over $4 million.

“Our strong fundraising numbers are proof that my message of transparency and accountability is resonating across California,” Chen said. “In my travels across the state, I repeatedly hear from Californians how the Sacramento insiders are failing them. Whether it’s a lack of accountability for all the money our state collects in gas taxes, or the over $30 billion our state sent to EDD fraudsters, it’s clear that the status quo isn’t working. Our campaign represents real change, and people are desperate for that in our state right now.”

“Our campaign is one of the most well-funded down-ticket campaigns in California history,” Chen’s campaign manager Matt Ciepielowski said. “We will deploy those funds using state-of-the-art microtargeting and marketing analytics and a presidential level creative team.”

Chen campaign fundraising highlights:

  • $4.15 million raised overall
  • $1.14 million raised between 7/1/22 and 9/24/22
  • $3.04 million cash on hand
  • 2,131 unique donors
