Gilbert Baker Now Has A Big Pile of Money

Updated: Apr 13

Arkansas Sen. Gilbert Baker, who entered the insanely crowded GOP primary for U.S. Senate just a few weeks ago, announces today he raised some $500,000 in the third quarter—a commanding performance that establishes Baker as the front-runner on the GOP side. Baker’s full statement is at the jump.

While we’re on the 2010 Senate race, why not watch this good discussion of said campaign between Talk Business impresario Roby Brock and Blake’s Think Tank mastermind Blake Rutherford?:


Full Baker statement on Q3 fundraising:

BAKER RAISES OVER $500,000 IN 30 DAYS

Conway – Senator Gilbert Baker released the following statement regarding his fundraising efforts since launching his campaign on September 1, 2009:

“I continue to be humbled by the overwhelming support our campaign receives, and I am extremely grateful to those who have supported my campaign in a significant financial way during these tough economic times.

Since launching my campaign on September 1st, we have received contributions totaling just over $500,000.  This is a strong beginning to having the necessary resources to communicate our common sense message to Arkansas voters.

“I look forward to a campaign about creating more jobs and boosting our economy.  Within this, two things are clear:  One, Arkansans deserve a Senator who will never be a swing vote on nationalized healthcare, cap and trade, and card check legislation — all of which affect small business, farmers, and other important aspects of Arkansas’ economic engine.

Two, Arkansans believe the next United States Senator should be a check and balance to the extreme agenda of the national Democratic Party. ”
