Bishop Challenger Reports Raising $110K During 1st Quarter Of 2010

State Representative Mike Keown, one of three Republicans hoping to unseat Congressman Sanford Bishop this November, released his 1st quarter fundraising totals Thursday afternoon.

The Keown campaign will report raising $110,035 in the 1st Quarter of 2010 with the Federal Elections Commission. That, according to the Keown campaign, will bring their fundraising totals to $246,079 with $193,792 left in the bank.

“The people of Southwest Georgia are giving our campaign an overwhelming response and putting their money where there mouth is,” said Keown. “I am truly humbled by the amazing support we’re receiving.”

“I do have to say a quick thank you to Sanford Bishop,” Keown continued. “His votes to make Nancy Pelosi Speaker, for the National Energy Tax and for Obamacare have shown the people of Southwest Georgia that he does not share our values or have our best interests at heart. He has done a great job making the case for our campaign.”

Keown faces fellow Republicans Bobby Brown and Lee Ferrell in the July primary.
