Gil’s campaign is the brainchild of Represent.Us. They aim to make campaign finance reform THE hot topic of the 2014 elections.
About a month ago, Represent.Us set up a crowdfunding campaign for Gil’s Senate run. They hoped to raise $20,000. With six days left, they have raised a whopping $73,737 (at the time of this post). That’s 369% of their goal! Keep track of Gil’s funding at: Help the Honest Politician Crash the Most Expensive Senate Race of All Time.
