CD2: McSally Raises Nearly $450K in First Quarter

Posted By on Thu, Apr 10, 2014 at 2:10 PM

With federal campaign-finance reports for the first quarter of 2014 due on April 15, you can expect to see a lot of campaigns releasing their totals over the next few days. The first one that we've seen comes from Republican Martha McSally, who had a titanic haul that fell just short of $450,000. McSally is aiming for a rematch against Democratic Congressman Ron Barber, whom she narrowly lost to in 2012.

The press release from McSally:

Retired Air Force Colonel Martha McSally announced today another exceptional fundraising quarter, raising more than $449,000 in the three month period that ended March 31 and proving strong enthusiasm in her campaign to oust incumbent Ron Barber. McSally has raised over $1.1 million since last July when she filed her candidacy for this race that is seen as a top competitive race in the nation this year.

"I am honored to announce that our rematch campaign continues to build extraordinary momentum and so many people are willing to invest in my call to duty to serve Southern Arizona in Congress," McSally said. "Southern Arizonans want leadership in Congress and know that we aren't getting it now. I am humbled that our campaign has earned this level of substantial support, and more than ever, I am confident we will have the resources and momentum to replace Congressman Barber in November."

This is the third consecutive successful quarter for McSally, and her largest to date for the 2014 cycle.
