The Jim Tracy for Congress campaign announced raising $303,000 in the 2nd fundraising quarter, raising nearly $750,000 in six months more than 13 months prior the primary election. Embattled incumbent DesJarlais reported his 2ndquarter fundraising at $39,155, and challenger Joe Carr reported a 2nd quarter fundraising number of $100,000.
“The 2nd quarter fundraising numbers clearly show Jim Tracy’s support in the 4th district,” said Tracy for Congress Finance Chairman Shane Reeves. “But more importantly, the numbers demonstrate that the Tracy for Congress campaign is running a smart, lean, grassroots campaign focused on the issues.”
Tracy ended the quarter with over $656,000 cash on hand compared to Desjarlais’s $88,000 and Carr’s $275,000.
“I am truly grateful for the prayers, support, and encouragement Trena and I have received since announcing in January,” said Tracy. “I’ve had the opportunity to meet citizens of every county in the 4th Congressional district and learn what is most important to them. I’m ready to take their fight to Washington and I won’t let them down.”
