Today Ron Barber for Congress filed its first campaign finance report with the Federal Election Commission, showing that his campaign raised $549,132 from over 3,200 people in just seven weeks. The donations are the result of tremendous grassroots support from people who recognize that Ron is a powerful voice for Arizona's middle class families.
3,293 individuals donated to Barber's effort--a strong show of support that includes donors from the southernmost part of the district in Douglas to Oro Valley and across Arizona.
"I am honored to have the support of so many people--over three thousand strong--who have stepped forward for our campaign because they know I will step up and fight for middle class families in Washington," said Barber. "I believe that fundraising isn't just about the bottom line--it's about people investing in someone they know will stand up for their values. When I am elected, I'll fight for our middle class and veterans and to protect Social Security and Medicare."
