Grand Rapids, MI- State Representative Justin Amash’s congressional campaign announced today that at the close of the reporting period ending June 30, 2010, more than 500 people had contributed a total of $344,594 to his campaign to empower people, not government. The campaign reported $162,135 cash on hand. Amash leads the other Republican candidates in total contributions, contributions from individuals, and cash on hand.
Amash has received widespread support, including endorsements from Richard DeVos, former U.S. Secretary of Energy and Senator Spencer Abraham, Congressman Ron Paul, and The Club for Growth, an organization committed to free markets, smaller government, and lower taxes.
“People just want a voice in Washington and their support reflects that. My voting record and actions as a state legislator prove my commitment to limited government, free markets, individual liberty, and full transparency,” said Amash.
