Richmond, VA – George Allen announced today that in less than 10 weeks his campaign raised over $1.5 million for the first quarter of 2011. Allen received support from people in every county in Virginia and averaged over $150,000 a week in contributions. The campaign ended the quarter with nearly $1.25 million cash-on-hand.
"Susan and I are encouraged and humbled by the generosity of our supporters. It is truly invigorating to see the enthusiasm and momentum build throughout Virginia,” said George Allen. “It’s clear the people of Virginia are tired of being ignored by Washington. They are ready for a leader who will fight to rein in government, create more job opportunities and unleash our American energy sources. Our race will be hard fought and very likely determine control of the U.S. Senate and the direction of our country. I look forward to continuing to build a strong team of grassroots supporters who will work to bring the voices and values of Virginians to Washington.”George Allen for U.S. Senate
