- Pogue’s campaign became the first SC-110 campaign in history to break 200 individual contributions in quarter one, with a total of 229. The former record quarter one was set in 2008 by Chip Limehouse who had 98.
- Pogue’s campaign received the most contributed monies in quarter one for SC-110, collecting a total of $45,019.
