Long Nets $101 K During 2nd Quarter

7th District Congressional candidate Billy Long announced raising $101,700 during the second fundraising quarter of the year.
The Long for Congress committee is now reporting $326,493 in cash on hand to spend -- which according to Long, is more than any of his GOP rivals.
"I am humbled by the outpouring of support from my friends and supporters who are excited to be a part of our effort to "Send A Citizen To Washington" and rebuild the Republican Party with common sense leadership," said Long in a statement.
"For too long we have allowed career politicians who jump from one office to the next to lead our country down the wrong path. In supporting Billy, we are choosing to reject conventional politics and to elect a conservative businessman with the conviction to do what is right," said Springfield businessman Gordon Kinne, a fundraiser and supporter of Long's candidacy.
Joplin State Sen. Gary Nodler has told The Notebook he raised around $100,000 during the second quarter, which was really about one month because he announced his candidacy in late May.
Sen. Jack Goodman's campaign has said it won't release their numbers until the reporting date of July 15th.
