In a press release from Rachel Barrett  rachel@rachelbarrettco.com

In her first gubernatorial finance report, Speaker of the House Beth Harwell will show more than $5 million cash-on- hand, with more than 1,000 individual Tennesseans contributing to her bid for governor since July, the campaign announced today.

“I am grateful to all of the Tennesseans across the state who have contributed to my campaign,” Harwell said. “I pledge to be a good steward of their hard-earned money and gracious donations in this race for governor. We are positioned to be successful in getting our pro-conservative message out to Tennesseans statewide. This initial financial report is indicative of that goal, and I am excited about and proud of our efforts.”

David Ingram, treasurer of Harwell’s campaign, said she is the most qualified candidate in the race for governor. “Speaker Harwell will be ready to go to work on Day One,” Ingram said.  “She will be fiscally conservative as governor, just as she has been as Speaker of the House. She has balanced Tennessee’s budget every year, eliminated the gift and death taxes, kept the state the lowest debt state in the country, and cut nearly $1 billion in taxes.”

Harwell’s fundraising was led by her statewide Finance Committee, which includes the following members:
