Baker's bucks

Posted By on Mon, Oct 5, 2009 at 11:27 AM

Sen. Gilbert Baker has announced $500,000 in campaign contributions during his first month as a candidate for U.S. Senate.

I wonder if that's more than the cumulative totals of the rest of the Magnificent Seven of GOP candidates.

Baker's statement:

 

Conway – Senator Gilbert Baker released the following statement regarding his fundraising efforts since launching his campaign on September 1, 2009:
 
“I continue to be humbled by the overwhelming support our campaign receives, and I am extremely grateful to those who have supported my campaign in a significant financial way during these tough economic times. 
 
Since launching my campaign on September 1st, we have received contributions totaling just over $500,000.  This is a strong beginning to having the necessary resources to communicate our common sense message to Arkansas voters.
 
“I look forward to a campaign about creating more jobs and boosting our economy.  Within this, two things are clear:  One, Arkansans deserve a Senator who will never be a swing vote on nationalized healthcare, cap and trade, and card check legislation -- all of which affect small business, farmers, and other important aspects of Arkansas’ economic engine.  
 
Two, Arkansans believe the next United States Senator should be a check and balance to the extreme agenda of the national Democratic Party. ”
