Prominent lawyer John Deaton has made a significant donation to support his Senate campaign against U.S. Senator for Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren.

In a tweet yesterday, Attorney Deaton said he had donated $500,000 of his personal money to the cause. He expressed confidence in his ability to defeat the crypto-hostile senator in the November 2024 Senate election.

I put in $500K of my own money because I know I can win. Please help me get to $1 million by March 31. Donate traditionally or through Crypto because freedom is on the line.

Deaton Seeks More Donation

However, Attorney Deaton urged his more than 324,000 followers on the X/Twitter platform to help him raise $1 million by March 31st. While the majority of his followers are crypto enthusiasts, the top lawyer disclosed that his supporters can donate both traditionally and through crypto.

“I told my daughters that before you ask other people to believe in you, you must believe in yourself. So I put $500,000 of my own money to start this campaign. If I could self-fund, trust me, I would because freedom is on the line. The truth is I cant, and I need your help,” Deaton said in his recently released campaign video.

Deaton‘s appeal for more funds comes less than two weeks after he announced that people could also support his senate campaign with crypto donations. So far, top crypto stakeholders have donated financially to support Deaton’s campaign.

Earlier this month, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson revealed that he had donated the maximum amount of $3,300 permitted to Deatons campaign.

Deaton Confident on Replacing Senator Warren

A few hours before calling for more donations, Attorney Deaton released a new campaign video emphasizing that “freedom is on the line.”

Deaton said he decided to challenge Senator Warren because he was confident he could win. He added that Americans need nonpartisan leadership in Washington to represent common peoples interests.

Furthermore, he refuted claims that Warren could not be defeated in Massachusetts due to her popularity. Notably, Deaton highlighted some interesting stats that could help him unseat the anti-crypto politician who has been a senator for Massachusetts for over a decade.

Per Deaton, 64% of eligible voters in Massachusetts are neither Democrat nor Republican. He added that Senator Warrens favorable rating is currently at 41%, as she has only passed one bill in 12 years.

“I‘m not the only one who thinks I can win; Elizabeth Warren knows I can win because she can’t stop emailing almost every other day about me, naming and calling me a credible threat. She has asked other senators to email and name me the threat that I am,” Deaton remarked.

Since Attorney Deaton announced his candidacy in the upcoming U.S. senatorial election in February, several media outlets, including Fox Business, have described him as a major challenger that could threaten Warrens re-election bid.
