WEST LINN, Ore. – In another sign of growing momentum, State Rep. Scott Bruun, Republican candidate for Congress in Oregon’s 5th district, announced today that his campaign raised $404,631.13 in the third quarter alone, outraising his opponent incumbent Kurt Schrader by nearly $50,000. Today’s FEC filing also showed Bruun with $284,178.71 cash on hand, while his opponent is left with only $156,000 cash on hand for the final stretch of the campaign. Most telling, Bruun’s support lies firmly in Oregon, with nearly 80 percent of his contributions coming from Oregonians. This is Bruun’s most successful fundraising period to date.

“I am humbled and encouraged by the outpouring of support I’ve received from Oregonians,” Bruun stated. “It’s clear that Oregon voters have embraced our message of national renewal, economic strength, and fiscal sobriety, and are tired of the reckless policies coming out of Washington, DC. In less than three weeks, Oregonians will make a choice about the future of our nation. Given the overwhelming local support we’ve received during this campaign, I am confident that it will be our message that they choose.”

Bruun has raised $875,230.39 since announcing his candidacy. He is a businessman and three-term Oregon legislator running to replace first-term Congressman Kurt Schrader. Bruun and his wife of 16 years, Alison, have two young daughters and live in Clackamas County. They are active in local charitable, sports and church activities.
