Gosar well ahead of Gould in fundraising for CD-4

From Today’s News-Herald:

Gosar, who served as a dentist for at least 25 years, brought in more than $182,200 in contributions between April 1 and June 30, the reporting period for the July 15 quarterly report. He received contributions from various individuals including fellow dentists, attorneys, business owners and farmers.

The Republican from Florence received several $2,500 individual contributions. Several of those larger contributions came from out of state individuals.

Gosar spent funds on airfare, events, petitions, consulting work and advertisements.

Former Lake Havasu City Councilman Gould brought in more than $72,900 in individual contributions during the reporting period. His donations came from retired individuals, attorneys and business leaders.

In spite of recent way-out-of-context attacks by outside groups, Gosar is a solid representative who has done well for Arizona and had a strong record of achievement, especially for a first-termer. His advantage in funding reflects, in part, an understanding of that by Arizona voters and donors.
