4th Congressional 2010 April Filings
Ladies and Gentleman, the first quarter of 2010 has come to an end. Look and see how your candidates are doing and vote in the poll below!
Donors: 132 itemized non-PAC donors $67,136.82
Cash on Hand: $246,810.15
Inglis received a ton of money from PAC’s this quarter including CH2M Hill, Boeing, Caterpillar, Microsoft and the NRA.
Inglis also spent $81,000 at Brains on Fire in Greenville for various marketing strategies. One of those expenses was for his outdoor marketing campaign ($49,000) that, in my opinion, sucks. You see a billboard but don’t even know who it belongs to because his name is so small. Inglis’ wife also pocketed $6,233 from the campaign as her salary.
Donors: 200 itemized donors contributed $83,163.39
Cash on Hand: $188,727.13
Gowdy’s largest expenses went to Warren Tompkins associates in Columbia; First Tuesday Strategies, On the Mark and Under the Power Lines collected $41,354.
If you are looking for a money battle for this seat, it is between Gowdy and Inglis.
Donors: 12 itemized donors ($3,810)
Cash on Hand: $6,897.83
Jeffrey spent $9,000 with Mountain Media based out of NJ for her radio ad and a survey. Other expenses went to the Boiling Springs Tea Party (Upstate Printing & Publishing) in the amount of $1,541 and filing fees with the SCGOP.
Jeffrey has caught a lot of hell this quarter. From her lying about who she voted for President in 2008 to being called about by another former campaign manager who claims she is now on #6. Number six by the way is Dean Allen, who was unsuccessful at raising money for his run at Adjutant General.
Needless to say, she is sliding fast, only 3 of her listed donors this last quarter were from within the district.
Donors: 18 itemized donors ($8,250)
Cash on Hand: $2,039.65
Fundraising for the Lee campaign has picked up some with Jeffrey’s relevations coming to light. With that said though, Lee only has $2,000 on hand and has debt due to Dark Horse Strategy Group for $7,767.
Most of Lee’s expenses were paid out to Dark Horse for consulting and materials ($7,661) and the SCGOP for his campaign filing fee. They announced the hiring of a fundraiser earlier this quarter and Col. David Hunt has come to visit to. Lee needs to pick up his fund raising efforts to help earn attention or he is in serious trouble.
Donors: 48 itemized donors ($27,900)
Cash on Hand: $46,823.58
As we suspected earlier this year, Thomas spent a ton of money on advertising with WHNS, WYFF and WSPA. How much? $41,743 Considering the contributions he pulled, it doesn’t look like his Olympic advertising was all that successful. Thomas has about $3,000 in loans out due to himself as well.
On the questionable front, Thomas received donations from Larry Marchant ($2400) who has been in some heat recently for, say drunk driving? We don’t know Marchant personally but we have seen his name in the blogs recently. Don’t know how this will affect Thomas in the end though.
