(OH-15) – Senator Bob Peterson (R-Fayette County), candidate for Congress in Ohio's 15th Congressional District, announced that he has raised over $100,000 in non-PAC donations since announcing his candidacy just one week ago. These donations came exclusively from individuals who believe in Senator Peterson's candidacy for Congress.
The following statement can be attributed to Senator Peterson:
"I have traveled to all twelve counties throughout OH-15 in the past week and it is hard to describe how humbled and honored I am to have this level of support only seven days into the campaign. Our family and friends throughout the district have been so generous, but this is just the beginning of the momentum we feel each and every day. The people of this district want continued conservative leadership in Congress – someone who knows how to balance the budget, cut wasteful spending, and fight for our conservative values. I believe I am the best and most prepared candidate to lead that charge. I look forward to continuing to meet people throughout the district at events and in their homes in the days and weeks ahead.”
Senator Peterson also announced that additional endorsements will be forthcoming for his campaign this week and next.
