Mark Green releases Campaign Donation Totals

 

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – Dr. Mark Green, the Republican candidate for State Senate in District 22, today announced his fundraising totals for the second quarter. Green raised $134,575 for the second quarter, bringing his total raised so far in the campaign to $259,521.

“I think the reports clearly show my campaign has not only the momentum, but the grassroots support from across Montgomery, Stewart and Houston Counties to make us successful in November,” Green said.

Comparing Green’s numbers to his opponent, Green led Democrat State Senator Tim Barnes in second quarter fundraising by $71,221, after Barnes reported raising $63,354 this quarter. Green also leads Barnes in cash-on-hand, a key metric gauging the campaign’s financial strength going forward, by $224,922.53 to $80,340.88, an almost 3 to 1 margin.

This makes the second quarter in a row Green has increased his fundraising lead. Green’s $259,521 raised-to-date trumps Barnes’ $106,329 by $153,192, giving Green a commanding lead coming out of the pivotal second quarter.

“Camie and I have been humbled by the incredible support the good people of Montgomery, Stewart and Houston Counties have shown us thus far in the campaign,” Green continued. “My campaign is about electing a State Senator who knows how to create jobs and wants to keep government out of our lives. The numbers in the disclosures make it pretty clear which message is selling,” Green concluded.

Jeff Magruder, campaign manager for Dr. Mark Green, said that the numbers paint an even larger picture of the race. “It is clear to me that the vast disparity between the two campaigns’ ability to fundraise shows that Barnes’ record killing jobs, supporting unions and working against common sense education reform is destroying the momentum of his campaign,” Magruder said. “Dr. Green’s background as a job-creating veteran is clearly what the citizens of District 22 are looking for.”

Dr. Mark Green is the Republican candidate for State Senate in District 22. No stranger to service, Dr. Green was assigned to the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment as a special operations flight surgeon after completing his residency in emergency medicine in 2002 and served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Today, Dr. Green is the President and CEO of AlignMD, an emergency department, hospitalist and urgent care management and staffing company based in Clarksville. Dr. Green and his wife of 23 years, Camie, reside in Clarksville where they are raising two children, Mitchell and Alexa.
