Kennedy Qualifies, Has All the Momentum

With my wife Becky by my side, I made it official today and qualified to be the next United States Senator from the State of Louisiana.

I'm running because I want my country back. We have too many undeserving people at the top getting bailouts and too many undeserving people at the bottom getting handouts while middle income families are stuck paying the bill.

I couldn't be happier about where we are right now in the campaign. We have all the momentum and it keeps getting better. We've led in the last five polls by huge margins. The last two polls have us at 32% and 30% with no other Republican topping 11%. We're winning the fundraising fight as well, netting the most money raised this year.

I'm excited about the future of this campaign, the future of the State of Louisiana, and the future of the United States.

Press Release: Kennedy Exceeds All Goals With Massive 2nd Quarter Fundraising Total

Baton Rouge, LA --- John Kennedy reported nearly $1 million raised in his second quarter fundraising report for the U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana, bringing in $946,000, with $1,384,083 cash on hand.

This is the second strong report for Kennedy who led the field in the first quarter with $817,584 raised. Thus far, Kennedy raised $1,763,584 this year in his bid for the U.S. Senate seat.

These huge fundraising numbers come on the heels of five consecutive polls that show him leading by a large margin.

The fundraising report shows homegrown support with 97 percent of donors from Louisiana and 97 percent of the contributions from individuals.
