Not to let any grass grow after his official announcement on Friday, Congressman Jack Kingston sends the following campaign fundraising news via press release:
SAVANNAH, GA – Just days after entering the Georgia Senate race, Jack Kingston set a new fundraising record for an event in Savannah. Kingston raised $270,000 from the Friday event at the Mulberry Hotel. This fundraising haul tops the previous Savannah record set by Mitt Romney in 2012.
Kingston led the Georgia Senate field with $843k raised in the first quarter of 2013. Kingston has now raised over $1.2 million this year for the race. Kingston completed a four-day announcement tour of Georgia last week with stops in Atlanta, Savannah, Brunswick, Albany, Macon, Augusta and Athens.
Kingston lives in Savannah and has been married for 33 years to the girl he met in College Republicans at the University of Georgia. He and Libby have four children.
