Butch Miller vs. Burt Jones: What campaign finance reports say about the lieutenant governor’s race

“Butch’s number reflects the breadth and depth of support he has across the state,” said Neil Bitting, Miller’s campaign manager. “Burt’s number reflects the amount of money his family has.”

Jones has gained some steam, raising about $400,000 more than Miller since June 2021. Jones’s camp argued that his recent numbers indicated growing support.

“With the lead in fundraising, grassroots support, and the complete and total endorsement of President Trump, Burt Jones is building momentum every day toward a big win to become Georgia’s next lieutenant governor,” said spokesman Stephen Lawson.

On the other side of the aisle, Democrat Erick Allen has raised nearly $300,000 to date.

The primary election will be held on May 24, and the qualifying period begins on March 7, ending on March 11.
