High School Teacher Raises $506,803.84 to Replace Paul Ryan
Cathy Myers, a single mom and Janesville School Board Member, announces huge fundraising haul following Paul Ryan’s retirement decision
Janesville, WI – Today, Cathy Myers, a veteran high school teacher and two-term elected official, announced raising $506,803.84 during the first quarter of 2018 for her campaign to replace Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s First Congressional District.
Cathy Myers responded after nearly doubling her 2017 fundraising haul in just the first three months of 2018:
“I am incredibly grateful to the over 20,000 grassroots donors who have helped us raise over $800,000 for our campaign to replace Paul Ryan. Democrats nationwide are demanding new leadership in Washington, and voters in Wisconsin’s First District want a representative who will fight for them.”
Following his retirement announcement, election experts at Inside Elections announced a shift in their rating of the race in Wisconsin’s First District from “Solid Republican” to “Lean Republican.”
Myers responded, “Democrats have a serious chance to represent Wisconsin’s First District for the first time in two decades, so we need a serious candidate who can win. I’m the only woman running to replace Paul Ryan and the only candidate who has won an election. I am the only candidate who is prepared to govern on Day 1 to improve the lives of our neighbors who have been harmed by the effects of Paul Ryan’s disastrous policies.”
Cathy Myers is a single mother of two, a 24-year veteran high school teacher, and a two-term member of the Janesville School Board. Paul Ryan, a Janesville resident, has been her constituent since 2013.
