Schweikert Finishes Quarter With Highest Cash on Hand
Broad Support Leaves Campaign with Nearly $400,000 Cash on Hand
(Scottsdale, AZ) With broad support across both the district and the state, the Schweikert for Congress campaign finished the first quarter of 2010 with the highest amount of cash on hand of any candidate in the Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District.

Building on an already strong fundraising base, the Schweikert campaign added over 500 new small donors to the campaign. Unlike other candidates in the race, Schweikert’s total does not include substantial general election donations that cannot be used in the primary election.

“We are pleased with the broad-based support we had this quarter from donors all across the state,” said David Schweikert. One of our key goals this quarter was to broaden our fundraising base and tap into voter energy to bring new donors into our campaign. With over 500 new donors, we accomplished that.”

The Schweikert campaign was also placed “on the radar” in the National Republican Congressional Committee’s Young Guns program today. “I am pleased to see that the NRCC recognizes the vulnerability of Harry Mitchell this fall,” continued Schweikert. “We look forward to working with them in the fall to retake AZ-05.”

With substantial advantages in organization, key conservative endorsements like Arizona Right to Life and Concerned Women for America, along with a significant lead in early polling, the Schweikert for Congress campaign is well-positioned to win the August Republican primary and take on liberal Harry Mitchell in this fall’s General Election.
