‘HERE TO STAY’: Army Vet Running to Flip Nevada Senate Seat Red Has Massive $1M Fundraising Haul

The GOP will try their best to flip Senate seats in Nevada come midterms —and first-time candidate and Army veteran Sam Brown may be the guy to get the job done.

Brown just has a one million dollar fundraising haul; his second quarter in a row to clear the benchmark.

“The Brown campaign said that the contributions came from over 15,000 donors the past three months, up from contributions from 12,000 during the previous quarter. It predicts that Brown’s on track to bring in $4 million by Nevada’s June 14 primary, and it touts that it’s preparing to make a major ad buy in the coming weeks to run commercials on broadcast TV. Brown’s team didn’t share the campaign’s cash on hand as of the end of December,” Fox News reports.

“Last quarter, we showed America that we had started a movement for new conservative leadership,” Brown told Fox News in a statement.

“Now, we have shown that this movement is here to stay,” he emphasized. “We are the only Nevada Senate campaign of either party with this type of massive grassroots following. We aren’t funded by the Washington political class or PACs seeking a coronation. Thousands of patriots in Nevada and across America have rallied and donated to our campaign because they want new grassroots leadership that is accountable to the people.”

Brown, a retired Army captain, is a Purple Heart recipient who sustained injuries from an IED explosion in Afghanistan while deployed in 2008.
