“The thousands of people who are supporting our campaign show that it is time to show the door to politicians who care more about campaign donors and political parties than protecting our country, Hegar said in a statement to CNN about the latest filings.
“I look forward to building on our success this quarter and continuing to run a campaign powered by people and not corporate PACs.”
“I think that part of the reason it’s been so well-received is because the message resonates with people,” Hegar told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day” in June. “A lot of people across the country feel like they have absent representation and that their voices are not being heard.”
Hegar’s campaign announced that it had received $750,000 in the 10 days following its release.
