Republican candidate for District Attorney Coty Wamp officially announced today that at her first campaign event on Thursday, November 4, collected more than $113,000.
Wamp’s event, hosted at the home of Holli Counts and businessman Joe Grendys, brought more than 100 donors together in support of Wamp’s efforts to attack the growing violent crime problem in Hamilton County as our next District Attorney General in the 11th Judicial District of Tennessee. The campaign expects to collect additional donations in the coming weeks that will push this total past $125,000, which will set a new standard of support for a District Attorney candidate in this county.
“Since announcing my candidacy I have learned that our county is ready for a change.” said Wamp. “With violent crime rising at unsustainable rates, our community has finally had enough. Deterring violent criminals must be our first priority — and it will be mine if I am elected next August.”
Wamp continued, “My fundraising success thus far is indicative of how my vision has been received. It’s simple, let’s work together to combat violent crime, consistently support our law enforcement officers, and create a more efficient criminal justice system. This campaign has more money to raise and a whole lot more to do, but I am proud to see the momentum is ours.”
This strong fundraising total reflects broad support of Wamp’s platform among Republicans as well as significant grassroots support for the campaign going into 2022. The campaign plans to announce additional fundraising events across Hamilton County in the near future, but supporters can continue to support her candidacy by making an online donation today at https://bit.ly/CotyWamp.
“I am so grateful for all of the support,” Wamp said. “As a first-time candidate, it’s humbling each time I receive an encouraging phone call or a check in the mail. Both are equally valuable. Thanks to everyone who has already joined the Wamp camp— let’s keep growing.”
