DEMARCO RAISES MORE THAN $850,000 IN BID FOR CONGRESS
More than 1,200 individuals show overwhelming support through contributions
Homewood, AL (April 11) – State Rep. Paul DeMarco’s campaign for Congress will report raising more than $484,000 in the first quarter of 2014, making his total contributions to date more than $850,000.
“The people of Alabama’s Sixth District have embraced our campaign for conservative, common sense leadership in Congress,” Rep. DeMarco says. “The people standing with this campaign are not the special interests of Washington, but hard-working Alabamians looking for people of courage willing to fight for what we believe, no matter what.”
More than 1,200 individuals have contributed to the campaign. Contributions range from $5 to the maximum $2,600 allowed by an individual under federal elections law. Nearly 97-percent of the contributions came from Alabama. Rep. DeMarco did not make a loan to his campaign other than nominal expenses.
“People from Clanton in Chilton County to Remlap in Blount County, and everywhere in between, have responded to our call to restore Alabama values in Washington,” DeMarco says.
The campaign expects to report about $650,000 cash on hand at the close of the most recent reporting period on March 31, 2014. The quarterly report is due to the Federal Election Commission by midnight, April 15.
DeMarco is a two-term state representative seeking the Republican nomination for the congressional seat being vacated by Rep. Spencer Bachus. The primary is scheduled for June 3rd, 2014.
