CD2: Barber Raises $422K in First Quarter

Posted By on Tue, Apr 15, 2014 at 1:07 PM

As the deadline for FEC fundraising reports closes in, Congressman Ron Barber's team tells the Weekly he has raised more than $422,000 in the first quarter of 2014.

While that's a big number for Barber, it still lags behind the nearly $450,000 that likely GOP opponent Martha McSally reported raising last week.

Barber is still outpacing McSally in total dollars raised for the 2014 cycle. Team Barber spokeswoman Ashley Nash-Hahn tells The Range that the campaign has raised more than $1.6 million since the beginning of the cycle and has more than $1.2 million cash on hand.

“The reason our campaign has more cash on hand than Martha McSally's is that Southern Arizonans support Ron Barber,” said Nash-Hahn. “Since McSally has been adopted by the Koch Brothers, she will have a well-funded campaign, and that's why she would do exactly what the Koch billionaires tell her to do if she went to Congress—vote to eliminate the minimum wage, increase health care costs for seniors and raise taxes on middle class families. She would even vote to privatize Social Security. Southern Arizonans know that we can't trust McSally to look out for us."

The CD2 race promises to be on the top-watched races in the country.
