Wicker for Senate Raises Over $3 Million in First Quarter
United States Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi announced he raised more than $3 million in the first three months of 2008 and had more than $2.75 million cash-on-hand as of March 31.
Wicker had over 2,700 individual donors between January and March 2008. The majority of donors, nearly 77%, were from in the state.
“I am grateful for the wide range of support from thousands of donors throughout Mississippi, and the rest of the nation who have chosen to invest in our campaign,” Wicker said. “It is clear that our vision for creating more and better jobs, rebuilding from Katrina bigger and better than ever, and protecting America in the war on terror, compared to the liberal Democrats’ failed policies of higher taxes and big government is resonating with voters.”
Wicker was appointed by Governor Haley Barbour in December 2007 to the United States Senate to fill the unfinished term of Senator Trent Lott. He formally announced his candidacy to keep the seat in January. Prior to his appointment Wicker served Mississippi’s 1st Congressional District for 13 years in the United States House of Representatives.
