Well-known community activist and small business owner Subba Kolla released his First Quarter 2017 fundraising numbers and they were significant. Kolla has raised $286,693 in 60 days since his announcement on January 31, 2017. This includes over $50,000 in small donors over the last week of the Quarter alone. Kolla also has approximately $263,000 cash on hand.
“I am very excited and humbled to have this level of support from across the 87th District and all over the Commonwealth,” Subba Kolla said. “These fundraising numbers are just a start as we work hand-in-hand with the citizens of Loudoun and Prince William Counties to take back our representation in Richmond.”
On Thursday March 30, Kolla officially became the Republican nominee as he submitted nearly 300 signatures from the grassroots in Loudoun and Prince William, more than any other candidate in the race and over double the required number. Kolla has been busy attending several meet and greets with community and business leaders over the past month.
“These are formidable fundraising numbers by any standard, but exceptional when you consider Subba Kolla is a first-time candidate and the challenger in this race,” observed Virginia GOP Chairman John Whitbeck.
The Kolla campaign is aggressively transitioning to the General Election phase of the campaign in a very strong position. Kolla is honored to have the endorsements of Congresswoman Barbara Comstock, Virginia GOP Chairman John Whitbeck, former 87th District Delegate David Ramadan, Loudoun County Supervisors Matt Letourneau and Tony Buffington and many more local officials and grassroots supporters.
