Cunningham finance director Allie Watters said the amount of money raised by Cunningham shows the Lowcountry is committed to keeping him in office:
“Whether it’s stopping offshore drilling or becoming the most independent member of Congress, Joe Cunningham is keeping his promises to South Carolina and that’s why so many Lowcountry voters are supporting his campaign,” Watters said. “Joe doesn’t take money from PACs, and strong fundraising from people - not special interests - will keep Joe on the job and show Washington what it means to put Lowcountry over Party.”
Joe Cunningham is a centrist Democrat who was recently ranked the most independent member of Congress by Congressional Quarterly. Last month, The State Newspaper said, “Since coming to Washington, Cunningham has steered clear of controversy and has built a reputation as a centrist,” and, “isn’t afraid to break with his party.” He was recently endorsed by the League of Conservation Voters and End Citizens United.
