Washington, DC – At the end of the second quarter, outside groups supporting Army veteran Greg Steube along with the Steube campaign report raising more than $1 million for the race to succeed Rep. Tom Rooney in Florida’s 17th Congressional District. This more than doubles the amount raised by Steube’s opponent throughout the entire campaign.
The Steube campaign publicly reported raising over $337,000 during the 2nd fundraising quarter, totaling more than $400,000 for the entire campaign. Liberty and Leadership Fund and Club for Growth Action have collectively raised over $627,000 to support Steube’s campaign.
“Greg Steube is a trusted conservative who has been a consistent fighter for freedom throughout his time in the Florida legislature,” said Club for Growth PAC President David McIntosh. “We can count on Steube to support President Trump’s pro-growth agenda.”
The financial strength of Steube’s campaign and his allies show that he is the candidate best positioned to win both the upcoming August primary and general election in November, while his opponent is struggling to even stay relevant.
Notably, Club for Growth Action has also already started buying media, reserving over $400,000 in broadcast, cable, and satellite for the upcoming August primary.
Club for Growth PAC is a political arm of the Club for Growth, a 501(c)(4).
The Club for Growth is the nation’s leading group promoting economic freedom through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, and education.
