Tippetts Reaches Latest Fundraising Goal

Libertarian governor contender Mark Tippetts reached his latest fundraising goal during a recent fundraising effort.

This week, Tippetts’ campaign announced the former Lago Vista City Councilman reached his fundraising goal. Tippetts supporters were encouraged to chip in to spread his message across the state during a matching promotion. Fundraising efforts by Tippetts during this period included a pledge to double contributions under a certain amount that were received on September 10th.

As of Tuesday, the Tippetts campaign announced the goal had been reached. However, the “MoneyBomb” fundraising effort continues and supporters are encouraged to chip in to support the Libertarian’s bid for office.

Tippetts is the Libertarian Party’s nominee for governor in the upcoming November election. Tippetts is facing Republican incumbent Greg Abbott and Democrat Lupe Valdez in the general election.
