Price Raises $76k Over Reporting Period

State Representative Four Price filed his campaign finance report today showing around $76,000 in contributions over the most recent campaign finance reporting period.

According to Price's report, the Amarillo Republican reported pulling in $75,601.29 for his campaign, while spending $173,700.10 during the same period. At the end of the period, which ran from February 25th through June 30th, Price reported $609,155.11.

While Price continued heavy fundraising ahead of the March 6th Republican primary, the report filed by the Republican appears to show that he took several thousand dollars at the conclusion of his March election. Notable contributions during this time include a $1,000 contribution from the Zachry Corporation PAC, and contributions from the Ford Motor Company PAC, Republic Services Employees Better Gov. PAC and the CVS Health PAC.

Additionally, Price reported in-kind support from the Associated Republicans of Texas and HOSPAC - State | Hospital Association of Texas. Price also reported that he received campaign backing from the Texas Alliance for Life and the Texas Citizens Coalition.

Meanwhile, Price's opponent in the March 6th primary, Fritch city manager Dennis Drew Brassfield, filed his end of campaign report. Brassfield reported no contributions during the allotted time, but did report a loan repayment to himself and several other small campaign expenditures for campaign materials. Brassfield also dispersed the remaining amount in his campaign account with a $765 contribution to the Hutchinson County Crisis Center.

Price will face no challenger in November and, unless challenged by a write-in candidate, will likely earn his spot unopposed.
