HOUSTON, Texas — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today announced more than $2,000,000 in total was raised in the third quarter of 2017 with $6,384,309 cash on hand.
“Every day, Sen. Cruz is working to advance Texans interests in Washington, D.C. and his consistent fundraising strength is reflective of the Lone Star State’s endorsement of his leadership,” senior communications adviser Catherine Frazier said. “From securing much-needed relief in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation, to efforts to repeal Obamacare, cut taxes, rein in job-killing regulations, and confirm strong constitutionalist judges, like now-Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, Sen. Cruz is taking on every fight that Texas voters elected him to take. And he will continue to lead the charge to ensure promises made to the voters are promises kept.”
In the third quarter, Sen. Cruz received 25,977 individual donations from 17,941 unique donors, with 4,728 first-time donors. He also received 24,768 donations less than $100. The average third-quarter gift was $76.
