(Rochester, MN) - Today, Brian Davis, Republican candidate in Minnesota's First Congressional District, released his fourth quarter fundraising numbers for 2007.
During the fourth quarter - October 1 to December 31 - Brian Davis for Congress had $59,302 in total receipts, the most of any Republican candidate in the race. This follows his third quarter results which were also the most of any candidate at that time. In addition, Davis had the lowest expenses for 2007. His cash-on-hand at the end of the year was $84,901.
Among major donors, Davis had strong fundraising both within Minnesota and nationally. Davis said, "It's clear that the general election will require support both locally and nationally for us to be successful in November. I think I've demonstrated that we'll be able to do that when the time comes."
As Davis noted earlier, "Our fundraising numbers are indicative of the support we're receiving from Republican activists across the district. Voters are responding to our conservative message focused on finding solutions to immigration, energy, an out-of-control federal budget and health care."
Brian and his wife, Lori, also a physician, live in Rochester with their four children.
