Will report $1,462,000 cash on hand
Austin, Texas — U.S. Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) today announced raising $454,979 in the first fundraising quarter of 2020. Rep. Roy will report cash on hand of $1,462,000 for his reelection campaign.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the tremendous outpouring of support for the Texas Hill Country’s Congressman, Chip Roy,” said campaign manager Nathan McDaniel. “Despite suspending fundraising and campaign activity for nearly all of March, the people of TX-21 helped put together an impressive haul of over $450,000 raised in the first two months of 2020 because in Rep. Roy, Central Texans see a leader who has no interest in partisan politics, and who wants to fight on behalf of the people of TX-21. As our nation combats unprecedented health and economic crises, Rep. Roy fought to deliver relief for the people of the Texas Hill Country. On the other hand, Wendy Davis’ campaign refused to halt fundraising for even one moment and continued their partisan sniping and political fundraising, including using the pandemic for fundraising purposes, at a time when Texans could least afford it. TX-21 deserves better, and that’s why they’re rallying behind Chip Roy.”
The Chip Roy for Congress campaign had previously announced a suspension of campaign and fundraising activities, but in the coming weeks will begin to start its outreach to Central Texans in a variety of ways compliant with social distancing recommendations.
