“Judson Sapp’s ability to raise funds shows the strength of his candidacy,” said Meredith O’Rourke, Sapp’s Finance Director. “Clearly, Judson has a message that resonates with conservative donors enabling him to raise $100,000 within hours of his announcement.”
“I am blessed with wonderful friends and family who believe in our country and our conservative values,” Sapp said. “This will be a long campaign and I’m willing to work hard to earn the support of voters throughout the district.”
