Republican State Senator and congressional hopeful Dr. Mark Green announced Monday that his campaign raised $420,000 in the second quarter, and his cash-on-hand totals $909,908.
“We’re honored that more than 1,000 donors have invested in our mission to bring battle-tested leadership to Washington. These funds will allow us to continue to run a strong grassroots campaign to talk to voters in every corner of the district,” Dr. Green said in a statement.
The Green campaign notes that, “With broad grassroots infrastructure built in each county throughout the sprawling 7th congressional district, Green’s campaign continues to receive support from Tennessee voters.”
Over the course of the primary election season, Dr. Green has garnered several top-tier endorsements from local and national groups including, the campaign lists:
100 conservative leaders
over 60 legislators

Dr. Mark Green is seeking to replace Representative Marsha Blackburn, who is running for the hotly contested open seat in the US Senate left by retiring junior Senator Bob Corker.
On the other side of the aisle, Justin Kanew and Matt Reel are vying for the Democrat nomination.
Early voting runs through July 28, and primary election day is August 2.
