Fleischmann Says He Has $640,000 Cash On Hand, Says It Is Almost $275,000 More Than Wamp

Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Rep. Chuck Fleischmann announced today his first-quarter fundraising has provided his re-election campaign with $640,000 cash on hand, which he said is almost $275,000 more than his opponent, Weston Wamp.

"I am once again humbled and immeasurably grateful for the outpouring of support I received from the people of the Third District and those across the country who are confident in my proven conservative record," said Rep. Fleischmann. "With these funds, I can continue to share my vision of a smaller and fiscally responsible federal government."

Finance Director Bryan Kaegi said, "Not only has the campaign raised nearly $1 million for the 2014 cycle, but in the two weeks since the first quarter of 2014 ended we have raised an additional $50,000 on the heels of the revelation that Weston Wamp secretly recorded Scottie Mayfield in his home."

The Fleischmann campaign raised over $300,000 in the first quarter of 2014.

Roy Exum: Tipping The Preacher

I got an unusual telephone call the other day from someone I love who asked my help in solving one of life’s delicate mysteries. It is a tough question: “How do you tip a preacher?” In the first place, you never tip a preacher. It’s the preacher who gives out the tips, helping to keep you on the straight-and-narrow in your quest to waltz through the Pearly Gates. But there are ... (click for more)
