NEW BRITAIN, CT - With more pre-election year donors than any federal campaign in Connecticut's history, Chris Murphy's campaign for U.S. Senate raised over $720,000 in the final fundraising quarter of 2011, bringing the campaign's total raised to $3.5 million. Murphy enters 2012 with a staggering $2.5 million in the bank.

"When we kicked off this campaign 12 months ago, I'm not sure I could have imagined that a year later we'd already have almost 5,000 donors to the campaign, and 7,000 individual endorsements from Democratic and progressive activists," said Murphy. "I'm so proud that 8 out of 10 contributions are from Connecticut residents, and that the vast majority of donations are under $250. We're building a fundraising base that doubles as a grassroots operation."

Murphy has demonstrated consistent and sustainable growth, building momentum through 2011 with over a thousand new contributors joining Team Murphy each quarter: Q1 - 1,594; Q2 - 1,106; Q3 - 1,023; Q4 - 1,149, for a total of 4,872.

In addition, thousands of individual Democratic and progressive activists across Connecticut have endorsed Murphy each quarter: 2,513 at the end of second quarter, growing to 5,138 at the end of the third and 7,031 total by the end of the fourth quarter.
