While the state Democrats are having to import funds to supplement their election efforts, the state Republican Party is, dare John say, redistributing the wealth?
Fo sho, fo sho. In an effort to buttress GOP efforts in some swing and not-so-swing states, S.C. Republicans are taking advantage of their respective largesse and putting some of the money elsewhere. According to the pre-election report, the following cash is going the following places:
Republican State Committee of Pennsylvania
Republican Party of Florida
Maine Republican Party
North Carolina Republican Party
Nevada Republican State Central Committee
New Hampshire Republican Party
Republican Party of Virginia
Oh, wow. When you consider that a recent poll has Rep. Henry Brown with just a five-point lead in SC-1, you’ve got to wonder about the state party spreading out the cash to so many other places.
UPDATE: Turns out, the Penn GOP returned half that cash, and, surprisingly, the RNC put some money in the state like WOAH. That is, $275,000 in one transfer. Not bad, Kemo Sabe.
