U.S. Senate candidate Sam Clovis announced his campaign raised $75,000 in the third quarter of this year, and maintains more than $35,000 on hand.

Fundraising continues to be a weak point for Clovis’ campaign. However, given the nature of Clovis’ campaign, catching on with grassroots conservatives exceeds his need to raise a lot of money.

The press release from the Clovis campaign can be found below:

Sioux City – The Clovis for U.S. Senate today released its Third Quarter fundraising numbers, ahead of the filing deadline of October 15 that is required by the Federal Election Commission (FEC.)

“What started out as a western Iowa campaign in June, has quickly grown into a strong statewide grassroots organization with donations and support river to river,” commented Michael Biundo, Clovis Campaign’s Senior Strategist. “We have secured approximately 200+ grassroots organizers, called County Co-Captains, in 40+ counties across Iowa and we have a candidate that is out-working everyone else in the field.”

Biundo continued by saying that “The campaign’s fundraising success this quarter is due largely to Sam’s strong grassroots support and we are excited to announce that Sam has raised $75,000 in donations during the third quarter of this cycle, with cash on hand exceeding $35,000. “Our average donation was $150.00, with over 450 individual donors. Of that number, 350 donors gave 100 or less – 200 of the contributions were under $50.00. There will be no PAC money in this filing and the overwhelming majority of Sam’s support came right here from hard working Iowan.”

The campaign attributes the daily increase in momentum to his knowledge and frankness on the issues, as well as the shoe leather and tire rubber that has taken him across the state.

“I am excited and frankly humbled by the support and sacrifice of time and treasure that the people of Iowa have given me. I am looking forward to continuing to travel from river to river and everywhere in between to meet face-to-face with these voters, shake their hands, look them straight in the eyes and personally ask for their vote,” commented Clovis. “Iowa is a state that expects its candidates to get close and personal with them and I have done that and will continue to do that. I want them to know that I will represent them in Washington, DC and that their voice will be heard.”

Sam Clovis hold a MBA in Management and a Doctorate in Public Administration. He is currently a tenured full professor at a private liberal arts college in northwest Iowa. He served in the United States Air Force for 25 years and still provides leadership to defense and homeland security institutions. He lives in Hinton, IA with his wife Charlotte and stepson Khan.
