Taylor reports raising nearly $200,000 during the Fourth Quarter

Monday, Second Congressional District candidate Jessica Taylor (R) announced that her campaign has raising over $200,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019 after announcing her candidacy in late October.

Taylor said that, not a single dollar of the funds raised were from loans by the candidate.

“It is humbling to have received so much support from over 1,400 donors,” Taylor said in a statement. “It is clear that our message of protecting the right to life, defending the Second Amendment, and fighting to beat socialism is resonating with voters. As your next congresswoman, I will go toe-to-toe with radical socialists like AOC and Ilhan Omar to make sure America holds strong to its founding conservative values.”

Taylor has also collected a number of endorsements including from: Susan B Anthony List, Former Governor Mike Huckabee, Winning for Women, ViewPAC, and former AL-02 candidate Will Dismukes.

Taylor is a Prattville businesswoman and outspoken conservative. Her campaign has drawn attention for her commercials calling for a new generation of conservative leadership that can go to Washington to support President Donald J. Trump (R) and do battle with Democratic Socialist Alexandria “AOC” Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, and her squad. Taylor’s ads also reference her youth playing basketball.

Taylor is an attorney; but for the last two years has been running her own small business. Jessica is married to former State Senator Bryan Taylor (R-Prattville). Sen. Taylor is formerly Governor Kay Ivey’s (R) chief legal counsel. The Taylors and their three children live in Prattville.
