“Torie Osborn has continued to prove the pundits, political insiders, and the Sacramento establishment wrong by maintaining her strong and robust fundraising apparatus,” said Osborn Senior Consultant John Shallman. “It’s clear that residents of the 50th Assembly District agree with Torie’s message—that Sacramento’s endless dysfunction is doing nothing but hurting Californians, and they’re ready for a change-maker to lead a movement that reforms Sacramento from the inside-out. Her consistent and rock-solid fundraising will help to ensure that we have the resources to communicate her message effectively with voters all across the district.”
