January 31, 2022 (Scottsdale, AZ)- Elijah Norton announces his fundraising totals for the fourth quarter of 2021, totaling $853,900. The Norton campaign heads into 2022 with a substantial financial advantage with over $2,000,000 cash on hand.
“Elijah’s opponent, and current Incumbent Congressman David Schweikert has committed some of the most serious ethics violations in the history of our nation. The people of the Northeast Valley deserve honest and effective leadership in Congress, and Congressman Schweikert has failed to deliver” said Norton’s Campaign Manager, Elena Ehrlin, “We are pleased to enter 2022 with such a staggering financial lead. This advantage enables us to effectively share Elijah’s message with the citizens of the Northeast Valley while bringing to light the seriousness of David’s crimes.”
In 2020, David Schweikert received a unanimous formal Reprimand by his peers in Congress and pled guilty to 11 ethics violations. These violations included committing bank fraud, money laundering through his campaign account, accepting hundreds of thousands in illegal campaign contributions, and over $500,000 in missing campaign funds. A full list of his violations and the sources can be found at TheSchweikertReport.com.
Elijah Norton started a business at 21 years old with only $1,000, ten years later that same business employs over 100 people and generates more than $100MM in annual revenue. Being a business leader in the greater Phoenix area has given Elijah a unique perspective on how bad federal policy, overreaching tax policy, and regulations directly affect the economy and everyday lives of Valley citizens. Elijah is intent to fight to extend the job-creating Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), conservative health insurance reform, and plans on supporting tough policy against the rising threat of China. Elijah is running for Congress because the people of the Northeast Valley deserve ethical and true Conservative leadership restored in Washington.
