Ellzey significantly outpacing Wright in money raised

ARLINGTON – At the close of the most recent Federal Election Commission (FEC) reporting period, Commander Jake Ellzey, a retired USN Fighter pilot & businessman, nearly doubled his opponent in total funds raised and had a 2.5:1 cash-on-hand advantage. “Our campaign has all the momentum as we head into the runoff because of the generosity of so many Republican voters and donors,” said Ellzey. “The reason is clear: my candidacy represents a clean break from the status quo politics of career politicians, who have broken Washington and saddled future generations with record debt.” “I am not going to Congress to go-along and get-along, but to make fundamental, bold reforms to address spending, control our borders and make our country safer. That message is resonating across the 6th Congressional District,” said Ellzey. The FEC requires candidate committees to report on their contributions and expenditures. The reports posted by both candidate committees on April 15, 2018, which covers money spent and raised from February 15th through March 31st, indicated Commander Ellzey raised $95,700 compared to his career politician opponent and former D.C. staffer, Ron Wright, who raised $51,892.95.
