ROUND ROCK, TX – The John Carter for Congress campaign announced today a strong fundraising quarter, raising more than $365,000 to put him in strong position for re-election. This amount was raised during the first complete fundraising quarter since winning one of the most hotly contested congressional races of the 2018 election cycle. In addition to raising such an impressive amount, Judge Carter’s campaign has more than $475,000 Cash-on-Hand, which is almost a third of what he spent on his 2018 re-election campaign and puts him on pace for a record breaking fundraising total for the 2020 campaign.
“I think this is a sign that Texans like my brand of conservatism and what we’ve been doing to improve the quality of life for our veterans and servicemembers at Ft. Hood and across the globe,” said Judge Carter, a former Williamson County Judge who has represented Central Texas in Congress since 2002. “But we have a lot more work to do. That’s why I have been hard at work, making sure that we have the resources to win again next year. I am as committed as ever to bring more of Texas to Washington and less of Washington back to Texas through 2020 and beyond.”
Judge Carter won re-election to the United States House of Representatives last year by three points despite being outspent more than 6 to 1. Carter’s pace of fundraising, and impressive cash on hand for such an early stage, position him as a formidable foe for any challenger.
