Rep. Jack Kingston on Q1 fundraising numbers

Kingston Opens 2014 Cycle with Strong Showing

Congressman raises $841k in first quarter

Savannah, GA ­ Congressman Jack Kingston kicks off the 2014 political cycle with a strong fundraising report. Due out next Monday, the report will show the First District Congressman raised $841,000 and has $1.75 million cash on hand.

“The outpouring of support over the last three months has been overwhelming,” said Kingston. “It is humbling to have so many put their trust in me to advance our conservative agenda.”

The report is by far the strongest Kingston has posted in his time in Congress. In comparison, he raised $89,993 in the first quarter of 2011 and had $956,627 on hand.

“Liberal special interests have already begun launching attacks in our state,” Kingston said. “We will need a strong war chest to turn back their attacks and continue our efforts to cut deficit spending, encourage economic growth, and harness America¹s energy potential.”

Kingston’s campaign committee, Friends of Jack Kingston, will file the necessary paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission which will post the report on its website April 15.
