Katie Britt today announced that her Republican 2022 campaign for the U.S. Senate has raised more than $3.75 million since she announced her candidacy in early June.
FEC filings for the third quarter, according to her campaign, Britt raised over $1.5 million from July 1 through September 30.
This impressive number comes after Britt raised $2.24 million in just 23 days of being an announced candidate in June.
According to her staff, Britt’s total does not include any loans, self-funding, or campaign-committee-to-campaign-committee transfers.
The first-time candidate saw 85 percent of her funds raised from Alabamians in the third quarter.
Britt’s campaign says this underscores her central message of grassroots support. Additionally, the campaign states, “95 percent of Britt’s quarterly haul came from individuals. She has almost $3.3 million cash-on-hand as of October 1.”
“I am grateful and excited that so many Alabamians are jumping onboard our campaign to save America we know and love,” said Katie Britt. “Our Alabama First message is resonating strongly with hardworking families in every corner of our state who want to protect our Christian conservative values and ensure Alabama always has a seat at the table. The enthusiasm we see firsthand on the campaign trail is incredible, and to have so many people all in this far out from the election is telling. The people of Alabama are already making it clear that they will elect fresh blood in 2022, and I will work tirelessly every day in the U.S. Senate to make our state proud and to grow good-paying jobs and opportunities for generations to come. Together, we will preserve the American Dream for our children and our children’s children.”
“This is merely the latest sign of strongly growing momentum for Britt’s campaign,” according to a press release. Britt was endorsed by the Alabama Farmers Federation’s FarmPAC – the biggest grassroots endorsement in the state – last week. She has also received the backing of the Home Builders Association of Alabama.
In total, 88 percent of Britt’s $3.75 plus million raised so far has come from Alabamians. “This is a far cry from Britt’s opponent,” the campaign said. Last quarter’s files showed that most of her opponent Mo Brooks’ donations came from out-of-state contributors.
Former U.S. Ambassador Lynda Blanchard and business professional Jessica Taylor also seek the Senate seat currently held by Alabama’s legendary Sen. Richard Shelby, retiring at the end of this term.
