Braley will report raising over $323,000 in 1st Quarter, $828,000 cash on hand

Waterloo, IA – The Bruce Braley for Congress campaign announced today that it will report having raised over $323,000 when it files its first quarter 2012 Federal Election Commission report, due April 15th.  The report will also show that the campaign has raised more than $1.4 million during the 2012 election cycle, and currently has more than $828,000 total cash on hand.  More than 2,000 Iowans have contributed to Braley’s campaign this cycle.

“Thanks to the support of more than 2,000 Iowa donors, Braley for Congress had the best first quarter we’ve ever had,” Braley for Congress campaign manager Molly Scherrman said.  “A record year followed by another record quarter shows just how much Iowans want someone in Congress working for us to break through the gridlock and create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and stand up for veterans.”

Braley raised more in the first quarter of 2012 than he has in any other comparable quarter since first running for Congress in 2006.

In January, Braley for Congress reported raising $1.1 million during 2011, the most ever raised by a 1st District Congressional candidate during a non-election year.

Applications must be submitted to the Republican Party of Iowa by April 13.

The 2012 Republican National Convention will be here before we know it. Once again, the RNC is organizing the Convention Page Program this summer in Tampa, Florida. The mission is to develop a program that provides young adults with positive educational experiences while fostering a new generation of Republicans through participation and community service.

Page duties will involve vital convention-related activities such as acting as floor runners, assisting with caucus meetings, and distributing official convention materials. In addition, there will be several other activities planned and duties may differ each day. Please be aware that pages are not assured floor credentials. The tasks they are assigned to perform at the convention will determine their access during any given session.

Pages must be 16 to 25 years old and must arrive prior to the start of the convention on Saturday, August 25, 2012 and remain in Tampa until the morning of Friday, August 31, 2012. They are expected to attend an orientation, work a full day, and attend all scheduled events. Those who do not report for scheduled activities may be asked to leave.

Pages will be responsible for paying for their own transportation to and from Tampa (including airport transfers to and from their hotel), lodging expenses, and any incidentals. The Committee on Arrangements (COA) will cover the costs of the ties and scarves for the men and women, respectively. Pages will be assigned a roommate and will be housed at a nearby hotel during the week. Upon acceptance, further information on the specific hotel and transportation fees will be sent to the participants.

Up to 2 Pages will be selected per state.  Therefore, Iowa will receive up to 2 slots for Pages at the National Convention.
