Ashwin Ramaswami, the Democratic candidate for the 48th District in the Georgia State Senate, has announced he raised more than $280,000 for his campaign against his rival Shawn Still.

Ramaswami’s office issued a statement indicating that he exceeded Still’s fundraising by a ratio of 22:1 during the most recent filing period spanning from February 1 – April 30. Ramaswami managed to raise over $146,000, whereas Still only raised $6,400.

“Our latest reports are further evidence that our community values honesty and integrity in our leadership above all,” said Ramaswami. “We’ve built a grassroots campaign with unprecedented momentum to ensure we elect a leader who will serve our communities first and foremost: funding our schools, supporting our small businesses, preparing us for the technology of the future, and protecting the right to vote.”

“Our community will never forget Shawn Still’s utter lack of leadership and integrity when he tried to overturn Georgians’ votes in 2020. Experience matters significantly, and it’s clear that Shawn Still has the wrong kind of experience,” Ramaswami further added.

Ramaswami has garnered support for his campaign from notable Democratic leaders including Georgia Democratic Caucus Chair, Sen. Elena Parent, Georgia Democratic Whip, Rep. Sam Park, and former Senator Jason Carter.  He also received endorsements from organizations including The Next 50, Leaders We Deserve, 314 Action Fund, South Asians for America, and REAL Action Inc.,

“I am endorsing Ashwin Ramaswami’s historic bid for District 48 because he has the vision and experience to fight for Georgians in the state legislature. This seat is the most competitive seat in the Georgia Senate, making it the top pickup opportunity for Georgia Democrats,” said Congresswoman Lucy McBath of Georgia’s 7th congressional district endorsing Ramaswami. “As one of the few competitive down-ballot races this cycle, this race will be critical for Joe Biden to win GA.”
