Charleston, W.Va. – Governor Jim Justice announced today that his campaign for U.S. Senate raised $935,035 in just over two months since he announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate and the end of the second fundraising quarter.
The campaign received support from 5,526 individual donors, and 93% of those donors gave less than $100. The campaign will report over $800,000 cash on hand as it enters the third fundraising quarter. “Governor Justice has received tremendous support from West Virginians and those who have confidence in his leadership and conservative record of achievements in West Virginia. In only 64 days, with no prior federal fundraising experience, Governor Justice raised nearly $1 million, and continues to be the strongest Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in West Virginia,” said Roman Stauffer, campaign manager for Jim Justice for U.S. Senate.
Justice’s fundraising haul is more than twice the amount that Alex Mooney raised during the prior first quarter fundraising period. All dollars raised went directly to Jim Justice for U.S. Senate and included no personal funds from the candidate.
