The Robert Hurt for U.S. Congress campaign announced Thursday that the campaign raised over $900,000 in contributions for the third quarter, making this the strongest fundraising quarter to date.
“Our campaign has seen a tremendous outpouring of support from 5th District voters,” said Hurt Campaign Manager Sean Harrison. “Central and Southside Virginians continue to line up behind Robert’s positive message of creating jobs by lowering taxes, reining in government spending, and reducing the size and scope of the federal government."
The third quarter campaign more than doubled the total amount raised from the previous quarter.
"These contributions will help us combat the hundreds of thousands of dollars Congressman Perriello is receiving from national liberal groups like George Soros’ MoveOn.org and big labor bosses as we work to put an end to the job-killing, big spending Pelosi-Perriello agenda."
Information on Tom Perriello's third quarter fundraising totals will not be released until Oct. 15, however the Congressman has traditionally led his challenger in contributions.
