Cathy Myers’ New Video Leads to Fundraising Surge
Myers brings in over $90,000 in 48 Hours Following Video Launch
Janesville, WI – Today, Cathy Myers announced that her campaign has raised $90,685 in the 48 hours following the launch of her powerful new video, “We Will Not Be Ignored,” with an average contribution of $29.
Myers’ new video has been viewed over 280,000 times on her digital platforms. Watch it here.
“A historic number of women are running for Congress across the country, and we refuse to be ignored. We refused to be silenced and take a backseat to less-qualified men,” Myers explained.
Cathy Myers is a single mother of two, 24-year high school teacher, and two-term elected official who currently represents Paul Ryan as a member of the Janesville School Board. Myers is running against Randy Bryce in the August 14th Democratic Primary for the right to take on Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Bryce has lost three elections in the district, including two primaries, with less than 40% of the vote.
The new video comes a week after Paul Ryan was confronted by a Florida teacher about his refusal to act on commonsense gun reform legislation. Rather than explain his position, he kicked her out of his high-dollar fundraiser.
Cathy Myers’ responded, “That type of disrespect for women and teachers is why Paul Ryan needs to go. I’m going to replace him because women will not be ignored in 2018.”
