Federal campaign finance records show Martha Roby‘s congressional campaign out-raised both of her GOP opponents in the third quarter of 2017.
Roby, who serves as Alabama’s 2nd District U.S. Representative, reported raising more than $260,000, while Barry Moore brought in a little over $30,000. Thomas Amason filed no FEC report this quarter.
Through her aggressive fundraising efforts Roby has a amassed a booming $401,000 war chest, which gives her a $359,000 cash advantage over Moore, who has over $43,000 cash-on-hand but also has a debt of $35,000 due to a personal loan made by Moore to his campaign. Amason has yet to declare any funds raised.
“Rep. Roby is grateful for all the individuals and families who have supported her reelection campaign so far. It’s a testament to her widespread support in the 2nd District and a recognition of her hard work to advance the conservative agenda that is important to those she represents,” said Roby spokesperson Emily Taylor. “This strong third quarter puts Team Roby on pace to raise as much as $1.2 million by June, which will greatly bolster our efforts to promote and defend her record as a results-driven conservative.”
The reporting period covered July though September.
