SUSAN COLLINS’ DIRIGO PAC PART OF CONTRIBUTIONS WITH “MAXED OUT” DONATION

Poliquin will show his campaign has just under $300,000 cash-on-hand as of June 30th

OAKLAND, ME – GOP nominee for Congress and small businessman Bruce Poliquin will announce on his July 15th FEC report covering the period through June 30th that his campaign has raised $281,205 in just the first 20 days since the Primary election.

Also, showing his fiscal prudence, his campaign will show a cash-on-hand balance of $291,503.64.

“There is a hunger to add new voices on Capitol Hill who understand how to create jobs,” said Bruce Poliquin, “Serving in Congress is serious business and people in the 2ndDistrict want someone who is a proven job creator who knows how to grow the economy.”

“I am grateful for the support I am receiving not only with contributions to my campaign but in the voices I hear at parades and in communities as I visit with people,” he added.

“I also appreciate the fact Susan Collins is supporting my campaign with the largest possible donation from her Leadership committee.  She knows I must win this seat for Maine to have a voice and seat at the table in the House majority,” Bruce said, “Senator Collins knows I will work with anyone – Democrats, Independents, or Republicans – in doing what is needed to stand up for Maine.”

None of the total received after June 10th contained donations from the candidate.  All monies raised in the 20 days following the Primary were from individuals and organizations.

Poliquin’s campaign is also very proud of its low “burn rate,” or the small amount it is spending to raise money and run the campaign.
