Eric Johnson, Texas House District 100 Candidate raises over $60,000 in June
Eric Johnson may be new to politics, but he seems to already have one of the key elements down: fundraising. Johnson reports that his campaign raised over $60,000 in monetary contributions between June 5 and and June 30, 2009.

“I am humbled by the level of support we received from our friends and family,” says Johnson who co-founded the Si Se Puede Political Action Committee with his wife Nakita. “I think a lot of people genuinely appreciate the fact that I have been working for years on issues that are important to the residents of House District 100,” he says.
In addition to the $60,000 in monetary contributions, Johnson’s campaign received nearly $5,000 of in-kind contributions in June. And he’s using a familiar strategy from the 2008 campaign, a large number of people contributing small amounts. Over 300 individuals have supported Johnson thus far, and 70% of those individuals contributed less than $100.
Eric Johnson is running against Democratic incumbent Terri Hodge for the Texas District 100 House seat.
