In the first quarter of this year, Pete Snyder spent $506,499. That’s a heck of a lot of pork for the Pig Rig! Perhaps Pete’s Rock star tour t-shirts were much more costly than they appear to be! Other than pork and t-shirts, I have no idea how he spent that much money in one quarter for a party convention nomination. It’s record setting spending. Who knew that someone would, or could, spend that much money to win a nomination for Lt. Governor? It must be a VERY valuable office!
Corey Stewart didn’t outspend Pete but he has a lot more money on hand to spend in the coming weeks before the republican convention on May 18. Corey has on hand $363,087 to Pete’s $178,647. Surprisingly, Jeannemarie Davis took in almost as much Pete in the first quarter of this year. She raised $256,620 to Pete’s $276, 814. Of course Pete way outspent her, as he outspent everyone. Pete’s out-of-state donors have really come through for him in this campaign! It pays to have rich friends in other states! I have to wonder what their motives are. Who invests in a campaign for Lt. Governor in another state? And why?
