Jim Ward Outraises Opponents in Congressional District 5 2-to-1

Scottsdale, AZ (February 2, 2010) — Jim Ward, Republican candidate for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District, today announced that he has raised nearly $245,000 in individual contributions for his Republican primary campaign. He is outpacing his Republican competitors by a two to one margin.

“I am humbled by the tremendous level of enthusiasm for my campaign. We continue to move closer to unseating Harry Mitchell,” said Jim Ward. “I am the only candidate that has the proven ability to tackle the big problems at hand such as the unprecedented growth in government spending, failed economic policies, a government-takeover of health care, and attacks on our personal liberties. This support confirms not only that there is a demand for new leadership, but also that I am the right person to represent CD 5.”

News of Ward’s fundraising milestone comes on the heels of major endorsements by Congressman John Shadegg (AZ-3) and he continues to gain endorsements from respected Republican leaders from across Arizona and CD 5. Ward also recently announced the formation of his campaign finance team, headed by Pam Barbey and Eric Crown.

“The huge outpouring of support for this campaign underscores how strongly Arizonans have embraced Jim’s commitment to bring the right kind of change to Washington, D.C.,” said Sean Noble, Campaign Consultant. “Ward continues to outpace his Republican challengers two to one in individual contributions. He is the only candidate with the message and the momentum to beat Harry Mitchell on election day.”

Ward’s campaign raised $91,748 in individual contributions in the final quarter of 2009 out raising his opponents two to one. The campaign has raised a total of nearly $245,000 in individual contributions vastly outpacing his Republican primary opponents each quarter in individual contributions illustrating his widespread support.

Ward announced his candidacy for Congressional District 5 in June, 2009. He has traveled the district outlining his vision for a more efficient, less intrusive government that promotes individual liberties and free markets. He promises to end an era of support for wasteful spending and big government. Ward’s campaign momentum continues to grow through endorsements and grassroots support.
