Here’s the press release from the Hayden Rogers campaign:
Brasstown, NC — Hayden Rogers, Democratic candidate for Congress in North Carolina’s 11th District, announced today that his campaign raised over $175,000 in the Second Quarter of 2012. The Rogers campaign ended the quarter with over $192,000 cash on-hand.
“I am overwhelmed and incredibly thankful for the support that our campaign has continued to receive from so many people across the 11th District,” Rogers said. “For the second quarter in a row, hundreds of voters in Western North Carolina have thrown their support behind our message and added their name to our grassroots campaign. It’s a testament to the strength of our campaign and shows we have the support and trust of the people of Western North Carolina to win in November.”
The Rogers campaign received donations from 263 individual contributors, including 250 first-time contributors. More than 70 percent of the individual contributors to the Rogers campaign live in Western North Carolina.
Rogers has raised over $491,000 since entering the race nearly five months ago. This total is more than the combined total raised, excluding personal loans, of both other 11th District candidates.
