Karen Handel Announces 1st Quarter Fundraising Totals

The following press release just came over from the Karen Handel gubernatorial campaign:

Former Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel announced today that her campaign had raised nearly $400,000 in the first three months of this year – 3/4 as much as it had raised in the last six months of 2009.

Handel, who is in a clear second place in the polls and in a strong position to be in the nearly inevitable runoff election in August, reported having nearly $600,000 cash on hand. This brings the total raised by the campaign to over $1.3 million.

"I am grateful for all of the support my campaign has received from people across Georgia and am determined to do them proud in this campaign," Handel said. "Georgians are clearly responding to our message of economic growth and ethical leadership and I am excited to have this level of momentum as we head into the critical months ahead."
