HOLT CAMPAIGN’S FOURTH QUARTER FUNDRAISING RESULTS
SPRINGDALE, Arkansas — The Jim Holt for US Senate campaign announces its fourth quarter FEC filing numbers. In what was essentially a week of fundraising in December, the Jim Holt for U.S. Senate campaign raised $60,261 and reported having $53,342 cash on hand at year’s end, 2009. None of the campaign’s funds came from loans.
Jason Sheppard, the campaign’s manager, says the results show that the campaign has the momentum needed to win the race. “We wanted to make sure that the people were behind us before we announced Jim’s candidacy in December, and this clearly shows that they are. Nearly all of our donations were from residents of Arkansas — fellow patriots who love liberty and want their country back.”
Sheppard also noted the most recent polling showing Holt as the lead candidate against Blanche Lincoln. “It all just drives home that same point,” said Sheppard.
