WASHINGTON DC, FEBRUARY 18, 2014 – In the final fundraising period of 2013, Utah’s Mia Love, seeking to represent Utah’s 4th Congressional District, raised more money than any other congressional challenger in the United States.
According to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics as reported by the Salt Lake Tribune, Love raised $516,300 in the final three months of 2013, largely through small donations. If she succeeds in November of this year, Love would be the first black female Republican in the House.
“This is a phenomenal achievement, but by no means surprising,” said former Congressman Allen West, “Mayor Love’s prodigious fundraising demonstrates the widespread support she has in Utah and beyond, and also demonstrates how laughable the whole narrative from the Left regarding minorities and women truly is.”
The Allen West Guardian Fund was established in January of 2013 as a Leadership Political Action Committee (PAC) to support conservative military veteran and minority Republicans running for state and federal office. It furthers the mission of the leadership PAC Colonel West established while in Congress during the 2012 election cycle which helped 7 military veteran candidates win their seats in the House of Representatives.
At the end of 2013, the Guardian Fund raised an impressive $2.8 million for the year. In the last six months of 2013 alone, the PAC raised $1.45 million, ending the year with $1.1 million cash on hand.
In the 2014 election cycle, the Allen West Guardian Fund will support 14 candidates, and has already endorsed Mia Love running for Utah’s 4th Congressional District , Dan Bongino, running for Maryland’s 6th Congressional District and Rep. Tom Cotton (AR-4), who is running for Senate in Arkansas
