UPDATED: U.S. Sen. Rand Paul’s re-election campaign announced on Monday they have raised $3.8 million for Kentucky’s junior Senator’s 2022 re-election campaign in the final quarter of 2021.
The fundraising haul brings Paul’s total raised to $14 million throughout the entire year and leaves him with $8 million cash on hand, according to his campaign. Paul garnered 89,508 donations in the last quarter of 2021, and over 250,000 donations during the course of the year.
“Individuals from every corner of the commonwealth, along with those who stand for liberty nationwide, continue to support Dr. Paul’s movement,” said Jake Cox, Deputy Campaign Manager. “Dr. Paul proudly opposes defunding the police, continued lockdowns, and the outrageous spending that has caused inflation to skyrocket to record highs. This latest quarter just goes to show his message is widely resonating with voters everywhere.”
Paul has raised more than 17.5 times than he did in 2015 and has more than 6.5 times as much cash on hand to begin the election year, according to his campaign. Paul easily won his 2016 re-election by double-digits.
“Voters know that Dr. Paul will return to the senate and continue to stand up for the same principles he’s stood for since first elected in 2010: fiscal responsibility, government accountability, and liberty for all,” Cox continued in a statement.
Paul’s leading Democratic challenger Charles Booker raised nearly $651,000 in the fourth quarter of 2021, according to a report filed with the FEC on Monday. Booker’s campaign has $411,330 in cash on hand.
