Collins Blows Past Loeffler in Fundraising— “Raises $400k More Than Sitting U.S. Senator” —
GAINESVILLE, GA – The campaign of Congressman and U.S. Senate Candidate Doug Collins announced today that it had raised $1.3 million in the second quarter of the year. This vastly outstripped incumbent Senator Kelly Loeffler who amassed only $912,000 in the same period — $100,000 of that from political action committees and lobbyists.
Collins’ campaign finance report listed contributions from more than 14,000 different donors and the average contribution was a modest $91.72.
“Raising money–especially from small donors–is a great barometer of support and it is clear that Doug has a dedicated grassroots army marching with him,” said Collins campaign spokesman Dan McLagan. “Kelly Loeffler is mainly supported by Kelly Loeffler, her super wealthy stock-exchange-owning husband, and a bunch of lobbyists. She leads a very small parade.”
SENATOR LOEFFLER ENDS Q2 WITH OVER $7 MILLION CASH ON HAND
ATLANTA — Conservative businesswoman and political outsider Kelly Loeffler has ended the second quarter with over $7 million cash on hand. This substantial figure includes thousands of contributions from grassroots supporters across Georgia. In total, Senator Loeffler reported $5.9 million during the 2nd Quarter of 2020.
“Senator Loeffler is building a substantial war chest ahead of the November election,” said Stephen Lawson, Communications Director. “In addition to having a vast resource advantage, Kelly has also built a robust field operation, contacting tens of thousands of voters each week and mobilizing grassroots supporters in all 159 counties. With recent polling showing a statistical tie at the top and with advantages in resources, infrastructure and messaging, it’s obvious that Kelly Loeffler has the clearest path to winning in November.”
