Lamb raises $1.08M in 2Q, sets GOP gubernatorial fundraising record


Oklahomans for Lamb Sets Fundraising Record
Over $1.081 Million Raised During Second Quarter Reporting Period

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, July 5, 2017 – Oklahomans for Lamb announced today it raised over $1.081 million during the April 1 – June 30 second quarter campaign reporting period in support of Todd Lamb’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign.  The total is a record for a Republican gubernatorial candidate during a campaign reporting period. The report includes donations from Oklahomans across the state. Lamb raised over $250,000 in April, over $305,000 in May, and culminated the reporting period by raising over $520,000 in June. Lamb’s campaign began the election cycle with over $1 million, and now has over $1.9 million on hand.            

Lamb said, “I am extremely pleased with our fundraising effort during the second quarter, and look forward to a strong third quarter as well.  Next year’s campaign for governor will be very expensive, especially with several candidates on both sides of the political aisle in the race.  To thoroughly inform our citizens of my plan to renew Oklahoma, fundraising is a necessary component, as is a strong and dedicated grassroots organization which I am proud to say is growing daily.  I am humbled by the support I have received and sincerely thank every Oklahoman who has donated financially or volunteered to assist my campaign to this point. I will continue to meet and speak with as many voters as possible during the remainder of the campaign.”

Keith Beall, Oklahomans for Lamb campaign manager commented, “I have been involved in and observed numerous statewide political campaigns over the past 25 years, and this fundraising effort is certainly the most ever by a Republican gubernatorial candidate within a campaign reporting period. Perhaps most telling is our strongest month was June which is after all other candidates entered the primary.  It is just one validation that citizens from across Oklahoma strongly support Todd Lamb’s candidacy and his vision for Oklahoma’s future.”
