WASHINGTON, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- America's Liberty PAC and the Concerned American Voters PAC, two Super PACs organized to assist Sen. Rand Paul in his run for President, announced today that they will report raising $5,000,000 as of July 1.

Through the July first reporting deadline, America's Liberty PAC successfully raised $3.1 million, primarily to support ongoing efforts to elect Senator Rand Paul to the presidency, using a cutting-edge approach to targeting potential voters.

In a statement released today, John Tate, President of America's Liberty PAC, praised the total sum raised, calling it a "sign that Sen. Paul has real support in his run for President."

"I am very pleased with these fundraising results so far," said Tate. "This sum shows that Sen. Paul has real support in this race for President and we are working tirelessly to assist him by airing TV ads, managing and collecting data and running a top-notch digital campaign. We are just getting started and this financial support will allow us to continue to give Sen. Paul the help he needs in this race. Instead of spending millions on slick TV ads, we have invested and are building a tech-savvy, highly-targeted data driven effort that can be used to effectively manage the tremendous grassroots support that Sen. Paul has built over the years."

Concerned American Voters PAC, which announced its inception on June 1st, successfully raised $1.88 million dollars. Additionally, Concerned American Voters PAC announced a successful grassroots campaign in the key primary state of Iowa, including 40 full time staff members, 280,000 phone calls, and more than 220,000 doors knocked so far.

Matt Kibbe, former president of FreedomWorks and current senior advisor to Concerned American Voters PAC, noted that he was also encouraged by their fundraising success, noting that "we were able to raise a significant amount in a relatively short time frame, which is a real indication to us that there's serious grassroots enthusiasm behind the Rand Paul candidacy."

Additionally, Jeff Frazee, President of Concerned American Voters, addressed the success of both groups in a statement released today, noting that "these numbers are great news for us and for Senator Paul in his bid to take back Washington." Frazee added that "this money will allow us to keep doing innovative work in our quest to get Rand Paul to the White House and continue building an excellent and effective field operation in states like Iowa."
