LUBBOCK, TX – Today, Senate Candidate and State Representative, Charles Perry announced that since the last campaign finance report, he outraised all of his opponents combined.
“I am confident that we have the resources and grassroots infrastructure in place to win this race on September 9th,” said Perry. “I have been very encouraged by the incredible reception we have received from voters district-wide. The people of West Texas want to a elect a conservative leader with the experience to be an effective voice for our region.”
Perry raised $114,685 since his previous report in July, and his current cash-on-hand sits right at $287,000.

Democrat and former Sweetwater mayor, Greg Wortham sat in a distant third place bringing in just over $12,000.
“The top issue Texans are concerned about on the campaign trail is immigration. Texas doesn’t need Washington style leadership continuing to kick this issue down the road,” continued Perry. “I co-authored legislation to prevent illegal immigrants from fraudulently voting in our elections and I authored and advocated for legislation to do away with tax subsidized tuition for illegal immigrants. We need a State Senator with experience fighting for Texas solutions, this position is too vital to be a training ground.”
