COOKEVILLE, TN– Congressional candidate John Rose outraised his next two closest opponents ten to one in the first quarter of 2018. Rose surpassed $1.5 million in campaign funds, a sizeable advantage over other candidates, with an additional $137,000 raised in Q1. A successful fundraising haul paired with strong grassroots support, shows Rose clearly has the momentum
necessary to win.

“I am grateful to have meaningful support for my campaign from within the 6th Congressional District. This is my lifelong home and I am determined to take Tennessee values to Washington, and get Washington out of Tennessee,” Rose said. “I am a small business owner and political outsider ready to fight side by side with President Trump to enact his bold vision for America. We need strong leaders in Washington who know what it means to meet a payroll and balance a budget, not another career politician,” Rose continued.

Fueled by a bevy of supporters from across the district, Rose’s fundraising will grow in the second quarter to help garner even more support for his campaign. As a first-time candidate, Rose is uniquely motivated and qualified to run a sustained, top-notch campaign. The Rose Campaign has $1.01 million on hand. For the next few months leading to the August 2nd primary, the Rose campaign has a strategic plan for connecting with voters through personal outreach, public appearances, television commercials, print media, mail, and more.

Rose is a conservative Republican, small business owner, farmer, staunch supporter of the 2nd amendment, and 100% pro-life. He is an eighth generation Tennessean who has spent his life in the district working to improve and contribute to his community. Rose is seeking the Republican nomination for Tennessee’s 6th Congressional District, a seat left open by Diane Black who is running for Governor.
