Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bill Hagerty raised more than $1.5 million in the fourth quarter, his campaign announced Thursday. That brings his total haul to $3.4 million since joining the race. He has spent about $400,000 on his effort so far.

Here’s the release from the Hagerty camp:

Nashville, TN — Team Hagerty today announced Bill Hagerty raised more than $1.5 million in his second quarter as a candidate for U.S. Senate. This builds on the success from his first quarter as a candidate, in which he raised $1.9 million in just 22 days. In just four months, Hagerty raised a total of $3.4 million. Team Hagerty has over $3 million cash on hand. 

“Team Hagerty is building momentum every single day, and we are so grateful for this outpouring of support,” said Bill Hagerty. “These resources are critical as we work to share my conservative message with Tennesseans across the state. Together, we will bring Tennessee’s Christian, conservative values to the Senate and defeat Chuck Schumer’s hand-picked liberal candidate.”

Speaking about the fourth quarter, Team Hagerty Finance Chair Steve Smith added, “Bill Hagerty is running a strong grassroots campaign that is quickly garnering support all across the state. Bill is the only candidate ready to work with President Trump on day one, and Tennesseans are excited that their Senator will be able to work so closely with the President on their behalf. Team Hagerty is strongly positioned to defeat Chuck Schumer’s radically liberal candidate in November, and we are not going to let our foot off the gas.”

Hagerty earned President Trump’s “complete and total” endorsement while serving as the U.S. Ambassador to Japan. Donald Trump Jr. is coming to Tennessee on January 28th in support of Hagerty’s campaign.
