Karen Handel Hauls in Nearly $550,000 in the First 100 Days
Alpharetta, GA – In the first 100 days of Karen Handel’s campaign to defeat Lucy McBath, her campaign reported nearly $550,000 in fundraising and almost $500,000 cash on hand. Nearly 70 percent of Handel’s contributions are from Georgia.
The financial success of the campaign follows Handel’s resounding victory in the Cobb GOP Fourth of July Straw Poll and last week’s independent poll showing Handel with a 4-point lead over Democratic Congresswoman Lucy McBath.
Former Congressman Karen Handel issued the following statement:
“Our hard work and successes over the first 100 days of the campaign is just the beginning. I am honored to have the confidence and support of voters across the 6th District. I look forward to taking on Lucy McBath and returning honest, competent representation to the district.”
Karen Handel is the former Congressman for Georgia’s 6th District and is running to retake the seat in 2020. Handel became Georgia’s first Republican woman elected to Congress in 2017 and was also Georgia’s first Republican Secretary of State.
