The FACTs Don't Lie
I did some serious digging.
Senator Hanger said he still has the support of the 24th District, except for some of the "extremists" who have taken over the Republican leadership. Well, how does Hanger prove that statement?
By raising money OUTSIDE of District 24???
Hanger apparently raised $68,250 this election year, not counting the $10,000 loan he got. Of that $68k, almost $60k came from outside the District!!!
The supposedly popular senator Hanger only received two individual donations from inside his own huge senatorial district. Only 2 individual donations! Is this the support Hanger has been talking about?
More than 3/4 of Hanger's money came from outside the district. But don't take my word for it.
The FACTs don't lie: Of senator Hanger's 28 donors, there were 10 PACs and 13 corporations. The PACs gave him $39,500, the corps. gave him $18,250.
I understand that every politician has friends who would give money to him, no matter where he is running. So let's take a look at Hanger's friends:
$42,250 came from Richmond.
Apparently that's where Hanger's friends are.
I can't wait to break down Scott Sayre's numbers. Apparently 80% of his cash donations come from inside the district in which he is running. And with no PAC contributions.
But Hanger... well, FACTs are FACTs. $59, 250 outside the 24th Senate District; $9,500 inside the District.
