Another $560,000 for Smith

From the Rod Smith Democratic gubernatorial campaign:

"The Rod Smith campaign today announced another successful fundraising quarter, raising more than $560,000 in hard dollars – despite having 5 weeks fewer than other candidates due to legislative session. Including in-kind contributions, the Smith campaign raised nearly $1 million during the quarter, approximately $20,000 more per week than his primary opponent.

"It’s been a great quarter," said Campaign Manager Paul Neaville. “We can feel the momentum everywhere we go. It’s pretty hard for Jim Davis to call himself the frontrunner anymore.”
