Volunteers with Debra Medina’s campaign for governor are setting off a “money bomb” on Tuesday aiming to raise a large amount of money from a lot of small donors on a single day.
This event is pegged to the Feb. 2 anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which ended the Mexican-American War in 1848.
Organizer Anthony Reed, a city council member in Haltom City near Fort Worth, said that date marked a key moment in history for Texas sovereignty, a central message in Medina’s campaign.
“People like to see what they can do together as a team,” said Reed, adding that the goal is to get more than 1,000 donations Tuesday.
Medina’s previous money bombs — on Oct. 2 and Dec. 29 — brought in about $20,000 on each of those days, which were the top fund-raising dates for the campaign, finance records show.
