JUST IN: Here’s what the candidates for #kygov have raised and spent this year insiderlouisville.com/government/sta…
Adam Edelen's campaign led the way this year by raising $2.35 million, though $1.48 million of that came from a loan by his running mate Gill Holland. insiderlouisville.com/government/sta… #kygov
Kentuckians for a Better Future, the PAC supporting Edelen, raised $641k -- $500,000 on which came from Christy Brown, Holland's mother-in-law. insiderlouisville.com/government/sta… #kygov
Rocky Adkins raised considerably more money than Andy Beshear, pulling in $885k. Beshear raised $728k -- a total that was fifth behind Bevin and Goforth (who self-funded $750k). insiderlouisville.com/government/sta… #kygov
In a "Politics of Beer" update, Goodwood owner Ted Mitzlaff is not listed as contributing to Matt Bevin despite being listed as an individual host of his fundraiser (a first?), but Bevin did get $2,000 from Peter Coors. #kygov
Just counting individual contributions, Democrats Adkins, Beshear and Edelen raised over three times what the incumbent Bevin raised this year.
Here are some notable contributions in Bevin's report for the period beginning this year (1/?):
I don't have an exact total yet, but Bevin received a large amount of contributions from out-of-state business CEO and PACS... Pfizer, Raytheon, more
As far as individuals, Matt Bevin received $1,000 from former CEO Papa John Schnatter, which is interesting. #kygov
Other notable Matt Bevin donors:
Jean Frazier $2k
Ed Glasscock $500
SCALA President Jim Lancaster $2k
Gary McNabb $2k
Neil Ramsey $2k
Vivek Sarin $2k
John Tilley $500
William Young $2k
Matt Thornton $2k
