July 9th, 2014

Grassroots support helps Barber to maintain strong momentum with more than $1.55 million cash on hand

Tucson, AZ – Southern Arizonan Ron Barber’s reelection campaign announced today that it has raised more than $550,000 during the second quarter of this year – Ron’s strongest quarter in the 2014 cycle. The campaign has raised more than $2.2 million since the beginning of the 2014 cycle and has more than $1.55 million cash on hand.

“Ron is fighting everyday for veterans, seniors, students and families in our community, and that’s why he has the overwhelming support of Southern Arizona,” said Ashley Nash-Hahn, spokeswoman for Ron Barber for Congress. “While Martha McSally hobnobs with East Coast billionaires and Wall Street’s favorite congressman, Eric Cantor, Ron is fighting for our families. Our community sees beyond Martha’s empty campaign slogans and slick ads for what she really is – an extremist who wants to cut Medicare, raise taxes on middle class families and eliminate the minimum wage. Southern Arizonans want a leader who will tell us exactly where he or she stands, not an extremist who will go to bat for billionaires and corporations that ship our jobs overseas.“

Since being elected to Congress two years ago, Barber has fought for seniors, veterans, students and families in Southern Arizona. He’s helped veterans solve problems with the VA. He’s stood up against drastic cuts to Medicare. And he’s fought against increased taxes on middle class families. A breakdown of his fundraising efforts is below:

  • More than $2.2 million raised during the 2014 cycle
  • More than $550,000 raised in the second quarter of 2014
  • More than $1.55 million cash on hand
  • More than 17,500 individual donations since the beginning of 2013
  • Nearly 8,000 people have given $100 or less to the campaign since the beginning of 2013
