Linda Lingle, Big (Campaign) Spender

July 31, 2012

When the second quarter fundraising numbers came in, we wrote about Hawaii Republican Senate nominee Linda Lingle's high burn rate -- she raised an impressive $1.1 million during the period, but spent just over a million of it.

Now, the pre-primary report shows Lingle has continued spending at a very quick clip, with the campaign shelling out an average of about $21,000 a day, far more than she's bringing in. In advance of the August 11 primary (which is not competitive on the Republican side) Lingle raised about $172,000 and spent $468,000 in the time covered by the report -- from July 1 to July 22.

Lingle is running ads and has launched a cable station focused on promoting her candidacy.
