An accomplished military leader quickly fundraised a large sum of cash for his inaugural run for public office.
Sam Brown successfully collected more than $1 million in donations for his first tilt for a U.S. Senate seat in Nevada during the past quarter.
This is the second quarter the retired Army captain received $1 million, fueling media speculation the Republican’s campaign fund could hit up to $4 million before the Silver State’s primary on June 14.
“Last quarter, we showed America that we had started a movement for new conservative leadership,” Brown said on Twitter. “Now we have shown that this movement is here to stay.”

Thank you to everyone who has supported our #DutyFirst movement thus far. We’re going all the way!https://t.co/w1IqsAs9ex
The Brown campaign thanked more than 15,000 donors who dug deep between October and December 2021. The number of donors had jumped 25 percent compared to the previous period.
“Thank you to everyone who has supported our Duty First movement thus far. We are going all the way!” Brown said.
The candidate revealed he is not funded by the so-called “Washington political class” or political action committees.
“We are the only Nevada Senate campaign of either party with this type of massive grassroots following,” he said according to Fox News. “Thousands of patriots in Nevada and across America have rallied and donated to our campaign, because they want new grassroots leadership that is accountable to the people.”
Brown was awarded a Purple Heart after suffering severe facial burns and other injuries from an improvised explosive device attack while serving in Afghanistan during 2008. He openly supports former President Donald Trump.
