Dresden – Breaking all 8th Congressional District fundraising records, Senator Roy Herron will report more than $675,000 for his campaign, all raised in less than a month. Herron is running for the seat currently held by Congressman John Tanner, who is retiring and not seeking re-election.

“I am delighted to have received contributions from all 19 counties in the 8th District, including from Democrats, Republicans and Independents,” Herron said.

End-of-quarter reports are being prepared by Herron’s campaign for release later this month as required by federal law.

Herron had less than a month before the end of the quarter to put together the $675,000 following Congressman Tanner’s retirement announcement on December 1.

“We feel blessed by the support we have received in less than a month from so many in our district and across the state,” Herron said. “I am particularly grateful to have received contributions from many long-time friends as well as from new friends and supporters. I am very excited about the prospect of working with Tennessee families to address the challenges that face our district and our country.”

Herron got contributions from more than 650 donors, including himself. Herron personally put $250,000 into the campaign, which will be reflected as a loan on the federal report.

“With the help of our friends and supporters, we will be able to fight for jobs and economic development for West and Middle Tennessee families. We need to get our country back on track, and I’m ready to get to work right here in the 8th District,” Herron said.
