Tom Horne Raised $100K This Period, $50K of It a Loan from His Sister

While Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne recovers from a four-night hospital visit for what his spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham says was a "minor procedure," his re-election campaign is dead in the water.

According to recently-filed documents with the Arizona Secretary of State, the embattled AG, who is facing active investigations from at least three agencies into allegations he's made the AG's office his campaign headquarters, brought in just a little more than $100,000 for the latest reporting period, ending May 31.

A pitiful showing, considering the usual influence of an incumbency on fundraising.

Of that amount, $50,000 was a loan from his sister Christine Newman, who lent him $100,000 during the previous reporting period.

If campaign finance receipts are any indication, Horne's head may belong to the Dems' "Mother of Dragons" Felecia Rotellini come November...

Still, combining both his primary and general election accounts, Horne reported $428,000 in cash on hand, as polls show him lagging behind his primary challenger, former state gaming director Mark Brnovich.

Horne is apparently hoarding what he has, having spent only about $56,000 during this reporting period.

Of course, you don't have to spend a lot when you're using state resources to campaign.

According to more than one source, Horne has told staffers that he wants to spend 90 percent of his cash on TV, and no more than 10 percent on overhead.

Brnovich did a little better than his last reporting period, but did not break six figures.

Running for elected office is expensive. While somecampaign workersare volunteers, others must be paid. Earlier most election campaigns werefinanced by corporationsand small groups of wealthy donors.Nowadays more and more politicians turn to fundraising and loans to promote the candidates and hold electoral campaigns. Some of election participants apply for loans online in order to make  their electoral campaigns more effective and attractive. This financial option is really  fast and reliable.

If Horne has got 428k on hand, then he can pay the 400k all his friends say he owes. peace

Will Tom Horniboi now have his mistress dance naked in clubs to raise more money for his failing campaign?  Heck, maybe he can put her back on her $100k/year payroll, as she'd be shitty at this too!

Could be worse, but he pulled less than $20K of the total in May, after the Beattie story broke. This was right when fundraising should've been taking off. And wanna bet June wasn't any better? Still a zombie.

He's going to need more than that for his criminal defense and or campaign....oh wait, almost forgot, Montgomery never files criminal charges against his fellow Republican politicians.

He's going to need more than that for his campaign, going to enjoy watching HornyBoy get his ass kicked come election time.

Lmao Rotellini has this in the fucking bag. Horne has NO chance....

$100,000 in what, 3 months? And half of that wasn't even earned through blood, sweat and tears.

That means HorniBoi got exactly $50,000 in campaign donations....

This is gonna be sweet... Rotellini will mop the floor with HorniBoi.

What's left for a Republican of his character to do?


Why, run for Governor of course. By the time the next election rolls around, the lemmings will have forgotten all about his challenged integrity. All he has to do is babble something about securing the border once in awhile and he'll be a front runner.

Royal, HorniBoi is facing having to pay $1.2M as a result of his corruption and bullshit.

I doubt he'll be able to raise that kind of cash.

@MaskedMagician1967 Yes, I think she does.  And people will be watching in case the GOP tries to pull illegal stunts as they did in her last election!

@shadeaux Unless, of course, he is somehow disqualified from running. I can't imagine what that might be, however.

Yup, all the way back to West Point to take those ethics and integrity classes again he must have slept through.

HorniBoi disqualified from running?

In Arizona?

You are joking right Eric?

Lol I highly doubt West Point would accept MontyPug Cozz.

It should be noted that West Point graduated 3 5-star generals, 2 of which would become President (Grant and Eisenhower. Douglas MacArthur was the other 5 star General)as well as Gen. George Custer of Civil war fame and Gen. George Patton, who slapped one of his soldiers.

The Army teaches its soldiers the acronym leadership using the letters L, d, r, s, h, I, p, standing for:

Loyalty

Duty

Respect

Selfless Service

Honesty

Integrity

Personal Courage

MontyPug exudes none of these characteristics.

Monty says he's a West Point Graduate.

He mush have missed a few other classes then.

Or he didn't go there at all Cozz....

After all, MontyPug is a politician. And politicians lie every time they open their mouths....
