Mike Collins reported raising $180,000 in just 22 days, with more than 90 percent coming from Georgians and the vast majority from supporters in the 10th Congressional District. He raised more money from inside the district than any other candidate. Collins has $576,000 cash on hand after being the last candidate to officially enter the race last quarter.
“I’m humbled and grateful that so many hard-working Georgians believe in and are inspired by our message to financially support the campaign,” Mike said. “I do not take anything for granted and will continue working day and night to earn your support, your trust and your prayers. I’m proud of our fundraising success thus far, but our work is far from over. With your continued support, we will fight the Radical Left, get the Trump Agenda back on track and overhaul Washington.”
David Curry reported raising just over $37,000. Marc McMain raised $100,000. Matt Richards raised just under $7,000 and has negative cash on hand. Timmy Barr raised $160,000 mostly from fellow state legislators. Former Congressman Paul Broun had yet to report.
Mike was born and raised in Jackson, Georgia. He credits his first job at age 12, sweeping floors in his dad’s shop, for instilling in him the value of hard work and an appreciation for the American Dream. That strong foundation and his entrepreneurial spirit spurred him to found his first business at age 25.
For the past 28 years, Mike has successfully owned and operated several small businesses. Since then, he’s grown his trucking business from just one semi-truck to a fleet of 115. Collins Trucking hauls millions of metric tons of freight throughout the nation each year and employs more than 100 hard-working Georgians.
Mike graduated with a business degree from Georgia State University and married his high school sweetheart, Leigh Ann. They have three children and three grandchildren and still reside in Jackson, where they are actively involved in their community. Mike serves on the board of the Georgia Motor Trucking Association and the Associated Credit Union. He and his wife attend Rocksprings Church.
