Cruz Raises $3.5 Million in 3rd Quarter
Campaign totals over $11.8 million from nearly 40,000 unique donors
AUSTIN — The Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate campaign announced today that it raised $3,500,000 in the 3rd fundraising quarter, including $2 million since the July 31 runoff. Cruz has $2 million cash on hand. Cruz has raised over $11.8 million overall, including donations from 244 of the 254 Texas counties.
Overall, the Cruz campaign has received donations from 39,855 unique contributors. Cruz has received contributions from 1,072 Texas cities, 244 Texas counties, and an average contribution of $163.
“Conservatives across Texas and America are hungry for someone to stand up and stop spending money we don’t have,” said James Bernsen, the Cruz campaign spokesperson. “Our supporters recognize that both parties have let us down and Ted will fight to reduce the size of government and pass a Balanced Budget Amendment.”
“Ted Cruz is committed to cutting spending, reducing our deficit and restoring the principles of limited government our nation was founded upon,” Bernsen said. “We won’t do that unless we elect strong fiscal conservatives to the U.S. Senate. That’s why so many Texans are standing with Ted. They know the stakes.”
Cruz, the former Solicitor General of Texas, won the Republican Party nomination for U.S. Senate in July. Recently, Cruz announced a coalition of dozens of Texas small business leaders supporting his campaign and the endorsement of the Texas Association of Business (TAB) BACPAC and the National Federation of Independent Business’s (NFIB) political action committee, the SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust. Cruz has also been endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Independent Bankers Association of Texas, the Texas Realtor’s Association and the Associated Builders & Contractors of Greater Houston PAC.
Cruz is running for Senate based on his proven record of defending American sovereignty, the Second Amendment, and religious liberty. In the Senate, he’ll fight to repeal Obamacare, pass a strong balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, and drastically limit the size and spending of the federal government.
