Thanks to our wonderful supports, KCDP has raised over $31,000 this year! These funds have gone directly to supporting Democratic campaigns in Knox County. Despite canceling our annual Truman Day fundraising Dinner this year, we were able to break an all-time record in fundraising!

These funds are being used to hire two full-time field organizers, pay for voter outreach efforts, and support our Democratic candidates in Knox County. We have already seen the fruit of these funds at work in the August 5th election:

  • Won TWO County Commission Seats (District 1 & District 2)
  • FLIPPED District 2 and increased Democratic vote share by 9 points
  • INCREASED Democratic vote share in District 4 by 4 points
  • INCREASED Democratic Vote share in District 5 by 9 points
  • Made over 7,000 calls and 5,000 texts
  • Mailed out over 1,500 postcards to voters
  • Increased Democratic votes in nearly EVERY precinct

Democrats have HUGE momentum going into November 2020 in Knox County. We have seen record breaking fundraising, record breaking volunteer engagement, and record-breaking turnout! Democrats are on the offensive in Knox County while the GOP is play defense.

We want to give a SPECIAL shout-out to our wonderful sponsor level gifts. CLICK HERE to see our generous sponsors!
