October 15, 2021 (Scottsdale, AZ) — Elijah Norton announces his fundraising totals for the third quarter of 2021, totaling $1.56 million. With $312,000 in individual donations and a $1,250,000 personal investment, Norton is extremely well-positioned heading into the end of the year as he gears up to take on David Schweikert in the primary election.

“In his first two months as a formal candidate, Elijah Norton has received immense support. Elijah has effectively demonstrated he will have the resources to bring to light the embarrassment and betrayal Congressman Schweikert has committed against his own constituents and supporters. Congressman Schweikert has already been unanimously reprimanded by his colleagues in the U.S. House, and the referendum on his corruption-laden practices is now underway.” said Elena Ehrlin, Campaign Manager for Norton. 

David Schweikert continues to face ridicule after spending over a million dollars of donors’ contributions on legal bills after admitting to 11 ethical violations. These transgressions include forcing his taxpayer-funded staff to illegally donate nearly $300,000 to his campaign, creating a six-figure fake loan for personal benefit, and at least $570,000 in campaign dollars were unaccounted for.

About Elijah Norton: 

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 plans 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.
