U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford, R-Charleston, raised more than $160,000 from October through December and has $323,000 to spend, according to an email from his campaign.
“After a grueling 2013 that had us raising funds for three separate elections, I am humbled by the financial support our campaign has continued to receive as we pivot towards the 2014 election,” said Sanford, the former S.C. governor who won the 1st District congressional seat left vacant last year by the appointment of Tim Scott, R-North Charleston, to the U.S. Senate.
“This financial support shows the overwhelming commitment of our supporters to the mission of limiting government in Washington and the stances we have been advancing in our first few months in office.”
Sanford raised $62,300 from July through September, ending that quarter with $195,500 to spend.
The Federal Election Commission deadline for filing campaign finance reports for 2013's final quarter is today.
