What seems like a way to underestimate Ron Meyers fundraising potential, Leesburg today reported Rons numbers all wrong, Ron Meyer’s camp is not happy about it :
Leesburg Today’s Embarrassing Error
Yesterday, Leesburg Today misreported that Ron Meyer’s campaign for Broad Run Supervisor received more than $22,000 from a previous campaign.
As is publicly available (click here), from when Meyer launched his bid for Supervisor on February 16 to the March 31 deadline, he raised more than $26,500 from business and grassroots leaders. None of that money came from his previous campaign.
Ron Meyer, President of Springboard Media Strategies and Republican nominee for Broad Run Supervisor, released the following statement:
My fundraising reports are all public. For a media outlet to misreport something that can be easily searched on Google is embarrassing.
Frankly, it shows either tremendous laziness or serious bias toward young candidates with a fresh Republican message. Business leaders and grassroots leaders are supporting our campaign because we have exciting plans to improve the lives of Loudoun residents.
Our tremendous supporters led us to out-raise all other candidates for Supervisor in Loudoun last quarter–including incumbents–and we only had half of a quarter to do it. We’re off to a strong start, and despite opposition from the media, we will take our message directly to voters.
