Steve Obsitnik Explorer Raises $108,727 in First Quarter.

Republican Steve Obsitnik raised $108,727 in the first fundraising quarter of 2017. Obsitnik received contributions from more than 900 supporters in his bid for an unnamed statewide office that is expected to be governor.

“I am overwhelmed and very thankful for the support that I received from across Connecticut and excited to announce we exceeded our first quarter goal,” said Obsitnik. “As I cross the state, two things are clear. First, voters are tired of sending the same people to Hartford who continue to make things worse. And second, that my record of creating innovative technologies, driving common sense solutions, and vision for a more competitive Connecticut, is resonating with voters.”

The Westport resident is a decorated Navy veteran who served on a nuclear submarine. He earned an MBA from Wharton.

No word on how much haul Obsitnik’s qualifies toward the $250,000 in small contributions necessary to ring the bell for Connecticut’s generous public financing scheme.
