“LUV GOV’S” FINANCES EYED AS PRIMARY CHALLENGE NOW LOOMS …

|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford raised $121,000 during the second quarter of 2015, according to Federal Election Commission reports.  That six-figure haul gives the former two-term South Carolina governor more than $640,000 in cash on hand in his congressional account – tops among the South Carolina congressional delegation.

Sanford also has more than $1 million sitting in his statewide account … prompting speculation that he might run for his old gubernatorial office again in 2018.

A week ago, Sanford’s fundraising numbers wouldn’t have meant much to anyone  – but reports that he will likely face S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne in a primary battle next spring have focused attention on his war chest.

This website has zero use for Sanford – who has sold out on a whole host of issues (most recently, Obamatrade).

But make no mistake: He’s an exceedingly disciplined fundraiser.  And having gone “all-in” for the GOP establishment during his second tour in Washington, D.C., expect the GOP establishment to go “all-in” for him.

For her part, Horne is looking to capitalize on the fifteen minutes of fame she achieved last week’s contentious debate over the Confederate flag.  The longtime fiscally liberal lawmaker believes her emotional (albeit fact-challenged) speech calling for the flag to come down gives her the opportunity to raise national cash.

She’s also no doubt banking on Sanford’s always entertaining personal life to create yet another meltdown …

Better Sanford than the screaming and lying Jenny. Sanford’s lying about his girlfriend did not bother me but Jenny’s lying I believe was a big reason my beloved flag came down. We have one race baiter in the governors office we dont need one in the US senate.

Yeah, but that amount of ignorance goes a long way explaining how we elect the people we do…voters don’t know what the hell they are voting for.

I tell you… this man…if he runs …will get re-elected.
This man could have driven the get-a-way car for Dylann Roof and would be re-elected.
This man hangs in there like a bad fart in a crowded car.

A first jump student is in the plane, at 3000′, and won’t go. His jumpmaster, anxious to jump, glares at him and yells, “IF YOU DON’T JUMP, I’M GONNA F***K
YOU UP THE ASS !!!”

The next day, the student’s friends ask him if he
jumped. He replies, “Yea …. a little at first”.

A new guy shows up at the DZ and asks to jump. His military records are in order (he was in an air- borne division), and he gets on the load. He even volunteers
to spot, explaining that he was very good at it, having been “trained by the Army.” The jump run approaches, and this guy is looking out the door…and looking… and looking… finally, he looks at another jumper and shrugs,
“Where’s the smoke?”

I don’t know anything about campaign account rules…
Does the state campaign account with $1M earn interest?
If so, does it have to stay in the account or can it be used for other purposes?
