David Pepper With Huge Cash Advantage Over Dave Yost
Dave Yost reports $50,509.12 of contributions received this quarter, with only $37,594.71 on hand, most of which came from the Ohio Republican Party and a few major Republican donors such as David Brennan.
Compare that to David Pepper, who reports $1,212.613.58 on hand. Just yesterday, the Ohio Democrat Party donated $100,000 to him, not including the $5000 from Chris’ money honey Kim. I count AT LEAST $100,000 from people named Pepper. And on May 25, Carl Lindner donated $2,500.
After serious crowing by the Ohio GOP after defeating former Auditor candidate Seth Morgan, this is depressing. With hard ball tactics like not allowing Morgan-supporting Republican legislators from using the ORP mail permit, I’ve never seen the state party more animated and alive than they were when gleefully batting down ragtag, unorganized TEA party efforts. After the primary, did they just give up?
