The Fulcher campaign is showing $102,115 in receipts from the most recent period, ending in the federal reporting deadline of September 30th.

“Russ’ vision truly resonates with his fellow Idahoans,” said Sen. Cliff Bayer (R-21). “His experience shows, and he will do an excellent job in Congress.”

“We truly are a grassroots campaign, and I am deeply humbled by every contribution I have received. To me, it’s not about the amount. It’s about the person, who is willing give his or her hard-earned resources to stand beside me as we pursue greater opportunities by right-sizing the relationship between Idaho and the federal government.”
