Corinna Robinson raised less than 5K from 10/16 on; Ends campaign with over 13k in debt.

Noem Pre-Primary: 73k raised, 95k spent, 881k in the bank.

The pre-primary FEC report is a bit of a different cat, as it isn’t a full report – it’s about 1/2 of a reporting period.  Regardless, Congresswoman Kristi Noem continues to remain in a far, far superior position than that of her Democrat Challenger: Kristi Noem 2014 Pre-primary FEC Report While Democrat Corinna Robinson has $8572 cash on hand, Congresswoman Kristi Noem has $881,078.74 cash on hand.  Yes, you are reading that correctly.

Eeeek! I’m being boycotted by Female Florida Democrats!

From my comment section comes more lunacy brought to you from the people who send out press releases for Corinna Robinson. Apparently, I had the temerity to ask about the association of Kathy Scott & Leslie Wimes to the Corinna Robinson campaign, since Kathy Scott sent out the press release noting “To volunteer or speak to media relations, contact Leslie Wimes..”    Yes, I asked the troubling & emotionally crippling question about their actual association with Continue Reading →

You know Corinna Robinson is running an awful campaign when even the Democrats berate her for it.

While I had my nose buried in my computer working on postcards & door hangers this morning, my cell phone rang, displaying a “No Caller ID” number.  Knowing the anti-Republican forces are active sending flourescent postcards lately, I pondered…. “Is someone robocalling again?” I was busy, but I answered it anyway.

Remember that report about Corinna Robinson passing the hat to collect unattributed cash? There’s another one.

Remember the notation about Democrat Candidate Corinna Robinson passing a hat around and collecting cash donations from January 30th? Robinson also did the stuff of good nuts-and-bolts campaigning, shaking hands, taking questions, circulating her nominating petition (as well as those of fellow Democrats Rick Weiland and Joe Lowe … how’s that for party unity?), and collecting donations by literally passing the hat (what looked to me like a military-style boonie hat as one more reminder Continue Reading →
