Bridger CEO Tim Sheehy Raises 2.8m in Fundraising for Senate Seat Race

“Thanks to the outpouring of support from grassroots conservatives, we’re in a strong position to win and finally beat Jon Tester in 2024,” Tim Sheehy said. “Our campaign is growing stronger every day, and it’s clear the people of Montana want a new generation of conservative leadership to represent them in Washington. Together, we’re going to finally retire Jon Tester, take back the Senate, and save our country.”

Of the over $2.8 million raised for Tim Sheehy for Montana in the 3rd quarter, $2.2 million came in from donor contributions and just over $650,000 were from personal contributions and loans.

The campaign ended the quarter with over $1.1 million cash-on-hand.
