I’ve been picking through Democrats’ Campaign finance reports, and noticed a trend among the statewide losing candidates that might be worth noting. Awful fundraising, and bad campaign finance reporting marks the undercard performers who filled the few Constitutional officer seats the Democrats bothered to attempt to fill.
Which might be a big tipoff as to some of the reasons they fared so dismally. No one had a clue what they were doing, and even fewer wanted to waste money on them:
Denny Pierson, Treasurer:. No year end campaign finance report on file yet. In the pre-general report, claiming $8241.50 Raised, $6845 Spent.
That could fund a legislative race. Maybe.
Angelia Schultz, Secretary of State:
Claiming zero carried over (my error)
I say “I think” because the Dem’s candidate for SOS failed to fill the pre-general report out properly. And, there’s no reporting of the supplemental donations.
In short, we knew they couldn’t raise money, but apparently Democrats also put up someone for SOS who couldn’t manage to fill out the campaign finance forms correctly.
David Allen for PUC. Year End Report showing $494 Raised and nothing Spent. Although, Records do show him raising $750. His Pre-general report which isn’t loading on the SOS site may have $300 or so in expenditures.
I’m not sure that funds a School Board race.
Not a good reflection on the Democrats. Luckily for Republicans, it sets the stage for continued GOP Dominance of the Statehouse for many years to come.
Why? Because we’re not seeing a challenge from these jokers any time soon.
