Source: First AL-06 fundraising report will show Gary Palmer raised $250k
A source close to Gary Palmer’s congressional campaign told Yellowhammer today that Palmer’s soon-to-be-released first campaign finance report will show he raised approximately $250,000 in the first fundraising period of the campaign.
“What I found most interesting about it was that it’s almost all in-state donors,” the source said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on behalf of the campaign. “And with the exception of about $5,000, it’s all from individual donors.”
Palmer, the longtime head of the Alabama Policy Institute, has proven his fundraising chops over the years while running his non-profit think tank. His network of conservative policy shops around the country was also widely believed to be fertile ground for his fundraising efforts.
