According to his FEC filing, 10th District incumbent annoyance Pat McHenry has burned over a half million dollars in campaign cash before the primary season has even begun.
This cycle (since the 2006 election), McHenry has raised 610,000 and spent 571,000. And the money is barely coming in fast enough to keep up with his spending. He raised $140,000 in 2007's fourth quarter. According to the FEC reports, Daniel Johnson raised just under $124,000. Thing is, Johnson only spent $5,000 to raise that nice chunk of change and McHenry spent $135,000. Oops.
And the local media is finally figured out that McHenry might be tanking. CharO recently profiled Johnson fairly flatteringly. And newsatnorman has caught on that the McHorny one has an awful lot to hide.
What's up Pat? Things not going so well? I've heard your staff and allies are deserting your sinking ship. So sad.
