TRABUCO CANYON, CA – Conservative outsider and U.S. Navy Combat Veteran Shawn Collins announced today that he raised over $200,000 in his first 8 weeks as a candidate. This fundraising total cements his status as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in California’s 45th Congressional district.
“Since announcing my campaign for Congress, I have been overwhelmed by the support I’ve received from the grassroots and donor communities in the 45th district,” said Collins, a husband and father of four. “Everywhere I go, I hear the same thing: people are tired of the status quo, and they are tired of politicians like Katie Porter who say one thing in Orange County then go to D.C. and vote like a radical.”
“This campaign will have the resources to spread my message of common sense economic policies, keeping Orange County families safe, and creating a brighter future for the next generation through education. My team and I are out working every single day on the campaign trail, and I have no doubt we are on the road to taking back the 45th district in 2022.”
