Mark Alford Raises Over $200,000, Leading the GOP Field in U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler’s District
Former TV news anchor and proud conservative shows broad statewide support and well-financed campaign

Raymore, Missouri – Mark Alford, Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in Missouri’s 4th congressional district, announced his campaign raised over $200,000 in less than three months from more than 500 individual contributors in the last quarter of 2021, a display of campaign strength and deep support statewide which sets his campaign apart from other self-funding competitors. Alford launched his campaign in October of 2021, after leaving a 23-year career in journalism due to the increasing unwillingness of the industry to permit conservative perspectives in its coverage.

“I’m deeply honored by the support so many have shown to this campaign in our fight to be the strongest voice for Missouri’s 4th congressional district,” Mark said. “Together, we can and will take back the House in November and restore sanity and stability to our great nation. The outpouring of financial support, attendance at our events, the steady growth of ‘Alford’s Army’ volunteers, and the encouragement and prayers being sent our way, is a constant affirmation of our decision to run. In a short time, we have put together an amazing campaign team, and I look forward to continuing to travel the district, meet with voters in person and listen to their concerns, hopes, and ideas.”

Mark Alford has more than three decades of experience as a professional communicator and understands not only how to communicate conservative perspectives, but also how to navigate the arrows that many mainstream, liberal journalists fire in attempts to discredit traditional, conservative principles. For 23 years, he anchored the #1 rated morning TV show in Kansas City. Mark is also a businessman and real estate agent, having run several successful businesses, including a horse boarding and training center.
