Graves Campaign Announces Strong 2nd Quarter Financial Support
Supporters donate nearly half a million dollars in the 2nd Quarter of 2014, and more than $800,000 in four months to elect Garret Graves
Baton Rouge - Conservative Republican candidate for Congress, Garret Graves announced today that he will report raising $493,354 for the second quarter, with a cash on hand total of $722,070. This brings Graves’ overall fundraising total to-date to $814,182 in four months.
“These are remarkable fundraising numbers for a candidate in an open seat. I believe it’s a testament to the enthusiasm people have in electing a bright young conservative problem solver,” said Christel Slaughter, Campaign Treasurer. “When you have a good product, it sells itself.”
Hundreds of donors from across Louisiana donated to Graves’ campaign. The movement has included support from Mary Matalin, the Koch PAC, more than a dozen parish presidents and hundreds of hard-working Louisiana natives looking for proven leadership.
“We’ve run this campaign with the same approach we’ll take to governing. We’ve been fiscally-sound and tactically-smart- two skills they could use in Washington. As we move forward, I’m confident we’ll be able to win this race and take these values to Washington and repeal Obama’s reckless agenda,” said Graves.
