Jennifer Garrison’s SoS campaign reported $294,541.48 on hand.
Husted has already reported his $2,051,714.28 on hand.? His primary opponent Sandra O’Brien continues the trend of conservative darlings who can’t raise money with $51,915.62 on hand.
Mary Taylor cleared out her account after reportedly raising $230,420.56 in the last six months…. Gee, I wonder where that went?
Well, on January 14, 2010, her Auditor campaign made a $181,264.25 donation to the Ohio Republican State Candidate Fund…? Huh, that’s odd, way back on December 31, 2009, that same fund made a $100,000 to… the Kasich campaign.? On December 14, 2009, the Summit County Republican Central Committee also made a $100,000 donation to the Kasich campaign, which is odd because that’s who Taylor’s campaign also made a donation to on the 14th of January.? Isn’t that just weird?
Kasich reportedly spent twice as much as Strickland…. fiscal conservative my ass.
[UPDATE I:] Kasich spent over $40k on polling alone.? Another over $40k on website consultants.? And over $10k in private charter planes…? Yeah, I don’t even have to say it, do I?
[UPDATE II:] In the AG’s race, Democratic incumbent Richard Cordray leads former U.S. Senator Mike DeWine $2.5 million to $1 million.
[UPDATE III:]? Hamilton County Commissioner David Pepper reports $604,966.70 on hand in the race for State Auditor.? Neither Republican candidates reported more than roughly $25k on hand.
[UPDATE IV:]? Incumbent State Treasurer Kevin Boyce continues to struggle.? He only raised a little less than $200k and has slightly less than $650k on hand to State Represenative Josh Mandel (R)’s $2 million on hand.? Boyce’s performance in the last six months was actually substantially worse than the last reporting period.? The good news for Boyce?? Mandel’s fundraising wasn’t that much better in the last six months than it was the first, and he burned nearly a quarter of a million in the process.? That’s about it.
[UPDATE V:]? The Libertarian candidate for Governor, Ken Matesz, reported raising no money or spending any money, but filed a report anyways.? No word from the Green Party’s candidate, Dennis Spisak.
