Cashing In On U.S. Congress District 12 Race

GROVETOWN, GA – Conservative farmer and State Representative Lee Anderson, candidate for Georgia’s 12th Congressional District, announced on July 16 that he has raised more than $500,000, with over $255,000 cash on hand. UPDATE: Anderson - a farmer politician - will compete in the run-off of August 22 with Rick W. Allen, a self-declared "businessman not a politician."

Said Anderson, “Residents of the 12th District are tired of watching their freedoms erode and they are standing with me for a Balanced Budget. This report shows that we are ready to win this primary and then get on with the business of sending Barrow and Obama home. I am incredibly proud of our grassroots and fundraising success, but we all know there is still work to be done.  Like I do every day, I'll be up before dawn, working even harder than yesterday, to get the job done for the people of the 12th.”

Said Anderson Campaign Manager Reagan Williams, "While others have adopted a 'fake it til you make it' approach to this campaign, Lee Anderson has built an unmatched grassroots network across the 12th.  His down home style and proven record have attracted support from every corner of the district and have made him the unquestioned front runner in this race."

In the second quarter disclosure, Lee Anderson for Congress will show $507,883 total raised, $297,361 in the second quarter with $255,822 cash on hand. These totals include a $178,000 loan from the candidate.
