Dallas, TX – State Rep. Eric Johnson has continued to attract widespread support from across Dallas since finishing first in the May 4 election for Mayor of Dallas.

Between April 25 and May 29, Johnson raised $843,092. He ended the fundraising period with $548,717 on hand in his mayoral campaign account.

“I’m grateful for the overwhelming support we’ve received from elected Dallas leaders, but I am not taking anything for granted, and neither should my supporters,” Johnson said. “This is a grassroots campaign that will be won through the tireless efforts of our volunteers and voters. We are working hard for every vote.”

Since his first-place finish in early May, a wave of elected Dallas leaders from across the ideological spectrum have endorsed Johnson, including Hon. Mike Rawlings and seven of his colleagues from the elected city leadership, four former Dallas Mayors and 17 former members of the Dallas City Council, three members of the U.S. Congress, five members of the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees, and many current and former state legislators from both parties, including Sen. Royce West, Reps. Angie Chen Button and Victoria Neave, former Rep. Helen Giddings, and former Sens. John Carona and Florence Shapiro.

Johnson reported a total cash-on-hand of $871,624 Friday. This total includes the amount of money that is in Johnson’s state legislative campaign account. State law requires that a candidate for mayor who is also a state representative report a single, combined cash-on-hand total to the city, which is why Johnson’s report reflects the total of both his state legislative and mayoral campaign accounts.
