“Mr. Schilling raised about $236,000 in the second quarter and had $500,000 in cash at the end of June compared to the $1.4 million available to Rep. Bustos, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.”
For the 2014 election cycle, Bustos $1.9 million vs. Schilling $654,000.
What’s even more pathetic is the grassroots have abandoned Schilling. Bustos got $296,000 from individuals for the quarter vs. $119,000 for Schilling.
Maybe a better title for this post would have been “Try To Act Surprised” since Schilling has lagged in fundraising from the beginning.
Earlier in the year Schilling said his goal was to raise $2 million—that doesn’t look like it will happen. While it is true that money isn’t everything in politics, especially for a known candidate like Schilling, it appears The Flawless ™ needs a Plan B to counter the lack of $$$$ needed to reach the $2 million goal.
