MIKE COLLIER BUILDS CAMPAIGN CASH

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mike Collier Builds Campaign Cash

Reports more raised money than any Democratic Candidate for Lieutenant Governor at this stage in decades

Austin, Texas, July 14, 2017 -- Mike Collier will report raising more than $234,000 in contributions for his first fundraising period. Mike Collier formally announced his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor less than a month ago in Round Rock on June 17.

Mike Collier issued the following statement:

“I started raising money 20 months ahead of the 2018 general election, and Texans have sent me a strong message: they are behind my campaign to serve as their next Lieutenant Governor. No Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor at this point has been in a more advantageous position in decades. Texas is a single digit state after this last election. I polled ahead of Dan Patrick in the most recent Texas Lyceum Poll [April 18, 2017]. This race is winnable, and I look forward to our success.

“None of the more than 1,000 individual contributions is a political action committee or special interest group. Nearly all donors thus far are Texans. My campaign is supported by Texans because they know I will fight for them. As a business leader and political outsider I will bring Texans together to solve our state’s real problems with honest solutions. Together we're going to make Texas Proud!"
