U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie’s reelection campaign filed its second quarter report with the Federal Election Commission today showing $1.54 million cash-on-hand. Guthrie for Congress raised $321,119 in the second quarter and has raised $1.48 million in the 2014 election cycle.
“We are fighting for better jobs, for a better quality of life, and to leave a better world behind for the next generation,” Guthrie said. “I am grateful to those who believe in the conservative principles I stand for while representing Kentucky’s second district in Washington.”
Guthrie for Congress has been helpful to fellow Republicans and GOP committees. In this cycle, his reelection committee has donated roughly 20 percent of its money to help other conservatives around the country. Those contributions have been made to the National Republican Congressional Committee, the Republican Party of Kentucky, and various candidates nationwide.
“I believe in teamwork and in electing more conservatives,” Guthrie said. “We need strong conservative majorities at the state and federal levels to enact real solutions for working families. We also need to continue to push back against the worst parts of the Obama and Pelosi agenda, which destroys Kentucky jobs.”
Guthrie has had a string of legislative accomplishments during the 113th session of Congress:
* Wrote legislation signed in to law reauthorizing the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
* Sponsored legislation to help reduce student loan debt by empowering student borrowers to better understand their financial obligations. H.R. 4984 has passed the House Education and the Workforce Committee and will be voted on by the full House in the coming weeks.
* Key player in passing the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which overwhelmingly passed the House on June 9 and now goes to the President for his signature. The law streamlines and makes more efficient the federal government’s training programs to ensure workers are getting the skills they need.
* Primary sponsor of H.R. 4351, the Alzheimer’s Accountability Act, bringing bipartisan awareness to the continued search for a cure.
* Introduced H.R. 3355, the Reducing Employer Burdens, Unleashing Innovation, and Labor Development (REBUILD) Act of 2013. Comprised of a “top 10 list” of policy priorities, H.R. 3355 will stimulate economic production and increase America’s global competitiveness. The bill includes reforms related to workforce training, tax reform, federal oil and gas resources, EPA regulations, repealing Obamacare, health insurance portability, renewal of trade promotion authority, and exports.
“I am working every day on issues that are important to my constituents, and will run a positive campaign focused on solutions. I am committed to making progress on what matters - ensuring good jobs for hard working people, getting the government off the back of small business, and leaving behind more opportunity for future generations,” Guthrie said.
