MCCALLUM POSTS BIG FUNDRAISING NUMBERS,
(St. Simons Island, Georgia) – Entrepreneur and former Newt Gingrich aide John McCallum submitted his first fundraising report today as a candidate for Congress in Georgia’s 1st Congressional District. After filing his report with the Federal Election Commission, which showed the campaign raising over $360,000 in the 4th quarter of 2013, the following statements were released:
“America is at a tipping point, and the American Dream hangs in the balance,” said John McCallum. “These numbers reflect that Americans are ready for bold, new ideas, not business as usual. We can’t keep sending the same kind of people to Washington and expect different results. We need a new generation of bold, conservative leaders who will fight to defend the Founder’s vision, regardless of the political consequences.”
“We are overwhelmed by the strong support from those in Georgia’s 1st District and beyond,” said Rachel Dodsworth, Campaign Manager for John McCallum. “John has a proven track record of helping others build businesses, create jobs, and pursue their dreams. We need bold, conservative leadership like his in Washington to preserve and protect the American Dream for future generations.”
With $363,658.67 in contributions (including a $100,000 loan from the candidate) and $304,562.80 Cash on Hand, McCallum raised more money than all of his opponents. In fact, McCallum raised more campaign cash in Q4 than any other Republican candidate for an open U.S. House seat in Georgia.
