According to Parisian colleagues, Valerie Pecresse is now out of debt and has raised the 5.1 million euros that she borrowed to finance her campaign in the 2022 presidential election.
Valerie Pecresse raised 3.3 million people, plus 1.2 million euros from Les Republicains and almost 600,000 euros in government money (corresponding to the reimbursements granted by the State to candidates who received less than 5%).
The candidate should not pay more than 4,600 euros from her own pockets, even though she promised to make up the difference in case of "Pecressethon"'s failure. She also declined the donation of 2,000 euro made by Nicolas Sarkozy, former President.
Le Parisien reports that the candidate should thank her donors soon by posting the following message to the site dedicated for the appeal for donations: "Thanks, to you, and thanks to the support from the Republicans, my presidential campaign costs are now fully funded. The personal loan I took out will be repaid.
