CD1: Kirkpatrick Raises Nearly $325,000 In First Quarter of 2014

Posted By on Fri, Apr 11, 2014 at 10:48 AM

As The Range noted yesterday, congressional candidates will be announcing their first-quarter fundraising hauls over the next week ahead of the April 15 filing deadline. Today, Congressional District 1 incumbent Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick announced she had raised nearly $325,000 between Jan. 1 and March 31 and had had mroe than $1 million on hand. Kirkpatrick will face the winner of the three-way GOP primary between House Speaker Andy Tobin, state Rep. Adam Kwasman and rancher/oilman/hotelier Gary Kiehne.

The press release from Team Kirkpatrick:

The Kirkpatrick For Arizona campaign today announced a major milestone for the 2014 cycle with more than $1 million cash on hand. The congresswoman has raised more than $1.5 million since being reelected in 2012, and hauled in nearly $325,000 during the most recent quarter.

“Ann’s achievements since returning to office have made a difference in the lives of Arizonans,” said Kirkpatrick For Arizona Campaign Manager Nettie Silleck. “That’s why she has a strong base of supporters. Whether they are veterans, seniors, small-business owners or tribal communities, these folks share her vision for building diversified, stable economies across our district. While her opponents campaign on far-right rhetoric and ideology, Ann offers common-sense solutions. Her campaign’s strong support is proof that putting constituents first is what matters most to voters.”

These funds will enable Kirkpatrick’s campaign to push back against the more than $1 million already spent against her in negative advertising by dark money groups funded by out-of-state billionaires, the Koch brothers.
