|Durant campaign raises over half-million in Q1; soon to surpass $2m total mark|
DETROIT, MI - The Clark Durant campaign raised over a half-million dollars in the first quarter; closing in on $2 million total raised
The Clark Durant campaign recently filed its 2012 first quarter Federal Elections Commission report showing that they raised $557,572 during the first three months of the year. This brings the campaign's total amount raised near $2 million dollars; the report shows $1,947,391 in total contributions and $1.5 million cash on hand.
"It's another impressive fundraising quarter. This demonstrates Michigan voters want to retire failed career politicians like Hokestra and Stabenow. Voters are sending one simple message: throw out career politicians and elect private citizens to fix Washington," said Bob Lutz, Durant for Senate General Finance Chairman.
Clark Durant commented, "I am honored many are investing in this campaign, giving me the resources and inspiration to fight for the people of Michigan. Too many D.C. politicians create big government programs that fail to solve problems. To get the country back on track, I will do what a senator should: decrease government spending, fight to balance the budget, and work to reduce the debt."
