LITTLE ROCK — Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced today that in June her re-election campaign raised $54,255 and reported $478,870.12 cash on hand. To date, her campaign has raised a total of $618,079.86.

“Since the people of Arkansas elected me as their Attorney General nearly four years ago, it has been an honor to work tirelessly on their behalf. June was another great fundraising month, and I couldn’t be more humbled by the continued support from all corners of our State. As I traveled to all seventy-five counties for the fourth year in a row to meet with Arkansans in their communities, the message I received was clear: They want an Attorney General who will keep standing up for them against criminals, con artists, and an overreaching federal government. I remain as committed as ever to doing just that,” said Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.
