Over Half a Million Dollars Raised to Date

Rep. Barry Fleming’s campaign for Georgia’s 10th Congressional District raised over $290,000 dollars since October of 2007, besting last quarter’s showing by nearly $20,000. To date, Fleming has garnered $563,475 in contributions from supporters across the district and the entire state of Georgia.

“These are the results of many long hours of teamwork by my family, staff, and supporters from across the district” commented Fleming, “it’s beyond humbling to have so many people investing in my campaign. Conservatism is alive and well in Northeast Georgia.”

Rep. Fleming began his campaign in September and got off to a quick start showing impressive fundraising and campaign ability from day one. Because of his leadership experience and constant conservative record in the Georgia House, Rep. Fleming has been able to rely on his record of cutting taxes, strengthening the laws against illegal immigration, curtailing frivolous lawsuits and voting for balanced budgets to show his conservative principles.

“I am proud of the things we have accomplished in Georgia,” said Fleming. “We talked about bringing conservatism back to the State House, and that is exactly what we have accomplished. Now it’s time to do the same thing in Washington.”

A former Columbia County Commission Chairman, and lifelong resident of Harlem, Rep. Fleming has strong ties to the 10th district with undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia. Barry and his wife Paige live in Harlem with their son Zach. They are members of Harlem Baptist Church.
