Big Cash from Slaughter

The Slaughter campaign’s latest press release claims that her second quarter filing will show that she’s raised more than $530K.  Based on the last filing, which covered the period through the beginning of June, this means that Slaughter raised over $250K in one month, which puts her on track to have raised over $1 million this cycle.  I’ve included the full press release after the break:

Since announcing her run for Congress, Maggie Brooks has been saddled with an ongoing corruption investigation that includes questions regarding Brooks’ husband and the possible misuse of $224 million dollars in taxpayer money, and has been dogged by her unwillingness to address the issues,ineffective leadership, and her record of increasing County taxes, fees and debt.
