Two months ago we noted the S.C. Republican Party (SCGOP) was facing a serious cash shortage compared to the S.C. Democratic Party. According to the latest federal filings, that problem persists.
The SCGOP currently has just $11,000 in cash on hand according to its July filing with the Federal Election Commission (FEC). By contrast, the S.C. Democratic Party has a whopping $169,000 in cash on hand.
That’s quite a gap … and it grows even larger when the two party’s state accounts are factored into the mix.
The SCGOP’s state account has a little under $24,000 – compared to $85,000 for the SCDP. That puts the total tally at $35,000 for the SCGOP and $254,000 for the Democrats.
Obviously both parties are ideologically bankrupt as far as we’re concerned, but it is curious to see the party of “fiscal conservatism” in such dire straits financially.
