FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 17, 2015
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Anaheim City Councilman Jordan Brandman announced today that he reported $116,297 in funds received between July 15th and September 30th — all available for the 2016 primary election. Beating expectations by a wide margin, he is neck and neck with Joe Dunn, who raised $120,674 in primary election funds.
In addition, Brandman out-reported perceived frontrunner Lou Correa by $50,795 and Bao Nguyen by $62,567 in primary election funds.
“I’m humbled by and grateful for the overwhelming support my campaign for Congress has received. What we raised this quarter — much of it in smaller donations — demonstrates how strongly the residents of the 46th Congressional District want a born and proven fighter to represent them in the U.S. House of Representatives,” said Brandman. “Clearly, we need a member of Congress who knows how to get results. I’ve lived in this area my whole life, and nobody is more committed to making our economy work for everybody, giving every child a world-class education, and safeguarding our national security than I am.”
Brandman credits these results to building support among residents of the 46th Congressional District and Orange County, where more than 30 local elected officials and community leaders have endorsed his bid for Congress.
“Others might spend their energy on flashy DC and Sacramento endorsements, but I’m focusing on the endorsements that really matter — those of my neighbors and colleagues right here in the 46th District where we know how to get things done,” Brandman said.
As an Anaheim City Councilman, Brandman has worked to restore public safety and community services to pre-recession levels. Since 2012, he has found funding to hire new police officers and firefighters, build new recreation facilities, and expand library hours.
Anaheim is the largest city in the 46th Congressional District. The city comprises approximately 41% of the district’s total voter registration, and over 41% of likely June 2016 primary election voters. Brandman’s strong electoral record includes first place finishes in his 2012 election to the Anaheim City Council and his 2008 and 2010 elections to the Anaheim Union High School District Board of Trustees.
A lifelong resident of Orange County, Brandman grew up in Orange and earned a B.A. in political science from the University of California at Irvine. He is a resident of the Anaheim Colony Historic District.
