Sources: Thomas Ravenel To Drop “Mad Cash” In U.S. Senate Race




By FITSNews  ||  Lowcountry businessman Thomas Ravenel – an independent petition candidate running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by “Republican” Lindsey Graham – is reportedly preparing to make a major media buy in his race.

Sources familiar with Ravenel’s plans tell FITS the reality television star – who once vowed to match Graham “dollar for dollar” – is looking at a media buy in the neighborhood of $1 million for the final two weeks of his campaign.  That’s well below the amount some Graham allies were expecting Ravenel to inject into the race … especially after he sold his 5,600-square foot downtown Charleston, S.C. home for $3.3 million six months ago.

“We expected to see that money by now,” one Graham aide told FITS.

Instead Ravenel has spent only around $125,000 on television – and with less than forty days remaining until Election Day, his window to make a real impact on the race is rapidly closing. More to the point, Ravenel had better reserve his air time soon because we’re fast approaching the point in this election when all the television space is going to be spoken for …

In addition to Ravenel and Graham, Democrat Brad Hutto and Libertarian Victor Kocher are also running for the seat Graham has held since 2003.

UPDATE: Lol.  Let’s hope Ravenel doesn’t drop his cash on this spot …
