Twinkle Cavanaugh raises $214,085 in April

Public Service President Twinkle Cavanaugh filed her final monthly fundraising report on Tuesday before the June 5th Republican primary for lieutenant governor.

With five weeks left until the primary election, Cavanaugh’s April report showed a monthly fundraising total of $214,085.

“I’ve been blown away by the response I’ve received from moms and dads in every corner of our state,” Cavanaugh said. “Our support comes from job creators and hardworking people all across Alabama- from our construction workers and coal miners to our doctors and Realtors. We need a proven, conservative Lieutenant Governor who will help move our state forward, and I’m extremely encouraged by the reception our campaign is getting.”

Cavanaugh has demonstrated statewide support. Cavanaugh had 658 donors representing 104 Alabama hometowns.

Cavanaugh’s campaign said that her record fundraising month exemplifies the snowballing momentum for her campaign. In fact, April’s total was the most raised by any candidate for lieutenant governor since Cavanaugh got in the race.

Primary fundraising reporting now goes to a weekly format, with the first of four weekly reports due May 14th.

Cavanagh faces stiff primary competition from state Senator Rusty Glover and state Representative Will Ainsworth.
