MICHELLE NUNN THANKS SENATOR RICHARD LUGAR FOR SUPPORTING HER CAMPAIGN
NUNN: "We need more leaders like Senator Lugar – not less, and I will strive to follow this legacy in the U.S. Senate"
ATLANTA -- Michelle Nunn released the following statement regarding Senator Richard Lugar's support of her Senate campaign:
"I am immensely honored and grateful for Senator Lugar's generous support in this race. His tenure in the U.S. Senate embodied the type of pragmatism and problem-solving Georgians are yearning for in Washington. Both in the Senate and in the international community, Senator Lugar's collaborative approach made us safer and moved our country forward. We need more leaders like Senator Lugar – not less, and I will strive to follow this legacy in the U.S. Senate."
Over the past few months, a number of news outlets have detailed the broad and diverse coalition backing Nunn's campaign. Bloomberg News and the Atlanta Business Chronicle both profiled Nunn’s support from top Republican donors and leaders in the Georgia business community.
In December, the Washington Post noted that former Senator John R. Warner – a Republican – donated to her campaign in the fourth quarter.
Earlier today, Nunn announced she raised $3.3 million in her first five months in the race.
