Former Governor Terry Branstad released the amount his campaign has raised since the beginning of the year. Branstad has raised an impressive $1.6 million in the first five months of 2010. He has $1.2 million cash on hand with the primary just three weeks away.
With only three weeks to go until the June 8th primary only one of Branstad’s opponents is running radio and TV ads, State Representative Rod Roberts. Bob Vander Plaats has yet to do any radio and TV advertising. Branstad had raised $3.1 since launching his campaign.
Below is the Branstad press release.
(URBANDALE) – Jeff Boeyink, campaign manager for Governor Branstad 2010, today released a summary of the campaign’s fundraising efforts for the period covering January 1, 2010, through May 14, 2010.
Boeyink said the campaign will file its actual report with the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board on Wednesday, May 19, 2010. Totals are as follows:
Contributions received 1/1/10 through 5/14/10: $1,638,086
Cash on hand at the close of the period: $1,203,414
Contributions received since campaign inception: $3,178,705
Total number of contributors since campaign inception: 9,608
“Iowans want honest conservative change and this is yet more evidence they want Terry Branstad to lead our state’s comeback,” Boeyink said. “More than 9,000 individual Iowans have made personal contributions to this campaign, and this shows Governor Branstad has made a significant connection to those grassroots Iowans who will make the difference on June 8.
“Since the first of the year, we have added more than 6,000 contributors as enthusiasm for Governor Branstad and his campaign continues to grow. In addition, these fundraising numbers clearly show Governor Branstad is the only Republican candidate who will be able to assemble the resources necessary to defeat Chet Culver in the fall,” concluded Boeyink.
