Eugene Vindman Raises Over $2,000,000 for Q4

Dale City, VA – “The grassroots support my campaign has received has been humbling. I am inspired by the everyday hard-working Americans that have put their faith in me to restore confidence in our government,” said Vindman.

“We live in a dangerous world that requires a steady and experienced hand on day 1. For 25 years, I served my country in uniform, defending the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I fought for accountability as a prosecutor and against impunity when Trump broke the law. Trump’s retaliation cost me my military career. Now my mission is to take on Trump’s MAGA cronies, to preserve our Democracy, restore trust in government, and fight for Virginia voters.”

Just 6 weeks after launching his race for Congress, Eugene Vindman raised over $2 million for Quarter 4. This sum constitutes over 70,000 individual donations, wherein 98.4% of donors gave $100 or less.

The Vindman for Congress Campaign’s average donation was under $29 including from thousands of Virginians who know what’s at stake in this election and want to vote to preserve Democracy in 2024. The map below of Virginia donors demonstrates the grassroots support the campaign has received from across the Commonwealth.

The campaign enters the election year with the resources needed to communicate with voters, meet voters across the district and build a movement strong enough to hold Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Holding this district is crucial to the Democrat’s campaign to win back the House of Representatives from MAGA Republicans.


Colonel (fmr.) Eugene Vindman, U.S. Army (ret.), was born in Soviet Ukraine. His family arrived as refugees with less than $800 in their pockets and worked hard to achieve the American dream. Vindman joined the U.S. Army after college, serving all across the world including a combat tour in Iraq. In 2019, while serving on the White House National Security Council as the senior ethics attorney, he blew the whistle on the infamous phone call in which President Trump attempted to extort Ukraine unless it investigated Joe Biden. Trump’s vengeance cost him his career. Now, Colonel Vindman is running to represent Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, to preserve democracy and advocate for Virginia voters.
