Betsy Rader raises $350k in 2nd Quarter of 2018
Rader’s Cash-on-Hand grows to $635k

Novelty, OH – On Monday, Betsy Rader’s campaign announced that they had raised $348,702 in the 2nd quarter of 2018, brining her campaign-to-date fundraising total to over $1 million. Rader’s campaign ended the period with $635,000 cash-on-hand (COH).

“I’ve been inspired by the outpouring of support from people across our district who have contributed, volunteered, and offered their help. As I talk with voters every day, their message is the same; they’re ready for a new, strong voice in Washington.” said Betsy Rader. “Folks in our communities are tired of watching as our Congressman caters to big-money lobbyists and fails to stand up for us –they want someone who speaks up and takes action on important issues like health care and prescription drug prices, protecting consumers, and getting big money out of politics. That’s why so many people are supporting this campaign, and we’re going to continue to work hard over the next four months to deliver our message to voters.”

In February, Betsy Rader took the No Corporate PAC Pledge, citing the “corrosive impact that corporate special interests have in our democracy.”
