Indian Springs, AL – Republican Candidate Dr. Chad Mathis officially filed qualifying paperwork today in the race for Alabama’s 6th Congressional District. In addition to qualifying, Dr. Mathis announced that he raised $356,097.82 since launching his campaign in October.
“Thanks in large part to the generosity of friends, family and supporters who have contributed to our campaign, I feel we are on our way to victory. Starting the 1st quarter of 2014 with more than $305,000.00 cash-on-hand shows the strength of this campaign,” said Dr. Mathis, an orthopedic surgeon from Indian Springs.
Key points of note:
- 84% of the money raised came from the state of Alabama.
- Doctors, who overwhelmingly support Chad due to his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, made up 22% of contributions.
- Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (R-MD) and Congressman Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) both contributed $1,000.00 from their Congressional campaign accounts.
- “The impressive financial report we plan to file shows the support I have to repeal and replace Obamacare – and it will be my mission to achieve this the moment I’m sworn into office,” added Dr. Mathis.
