Grant Starrett raises $721,000 for congressional race

Grant Starrett's campaign announced that it raised $721,000 in the first quarter of 2015.

The Murfreesboro Republican said in an emailed statement:

Our grassroots campaign has received tremendous support in our effort to bring conservative principles from Tennessee to Washington, D.C.

After going to dozens of meetings and visiting every county across the district since we announced in April of 2015, we are well on our way to a victory in August of 2016. We will continue to use our resources to campaign hard in every county, bringing our constitutional conservative message to the voters in all 16 counties from Maury to Bradley.

Starrett is challenging Rep. Scott DesJarlais for the GOP nomination in Tennessee's 4th Congressional District. The primary election is in August 2016.
