Today, Republican gubernatorial front-runner John Oxendine reported his second quarter financial disclosure. The campaign posted $869,550 in contributions and ended the quarter with $1,831,907 cash-on-hand (COH). Because state law does not allow sitting office holders to raise money during the legislative session, the campaign could only accept contributions in May and June – a constraint that did not affect the other major candidates in the race.
“John has a tremendous vision for transforming state government and bringing jobs back to Georgia,” said campaign manager Stephen Puetz. “The fundraising success our campaign had this quarter ensures that we will be able to effectively promote John’s message of downsizing government, scrapping the state income tax and fixing our infrastructure problems."
The $869,550 raised does not include loans or in-kind contributions and the COH figure is after paying for two weeks of aggressive TV advertising.
