Kelly Out Front in AZ CD-8

Jesse Kelly


TUCSON, AZ. The Kelly for Congress campaign reported very strong fundraising numbers for the fourth quarter of 2009. The cumulative amount raised is more than 3 times that for all other CD 8 Republican candidates combine. The Cash on Hand is more than 4 times the number for the other GOP candidates combined.

Last summer we faced 3 primary challengers. We have moved far ahead of two of them in donations and one had to step out of the race because he was called to active duty. After we worked all summer bringing down the poll numbers for Representative Giffords, one more candidate entered the race. We look forward to out-working his fledgling campaign as we did with the others.

The Kelly for Congress campaign has an aggressive schedule for fundraising again this quarter. We will continue utilizing new media to attract supporters and donations as well as traditional fundraising events. We will also be sending a mail appeal to our internal list of thousands of supporters.

Jesse Kelly is a candidate for Arizona’s Eighth Congressional District in the southeastern region of the state. For more information on the Jesse Kelly campaign please visit You can contact campaign manager Bret Summers at (520) 237-9056 or
