From The Observer: Trump endorsement doesn’t equal cash for Culp

Donald Trump’s endorsement didn’t do much to enliven failed gubernatorial candidate Loren Culp’s dwindling ability to squeeze money out of his base of small conservative donors for his challenge to U.S. Rep. Dan Newhouse. 

Despite getting the blessing of the grifter-in-chief in February, Culp took in just $46,000 in the first quarter of 2022, according to his most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission. To give you some context about how feeble that is, a 22-year-old state Senator raised $65K in March alone. In possibly related news, Culp was most recently in the news for failing to understand Facebook. 

Quarterly reports from the FEC dropped on Friday, so today we’re taking a little spin through the money in congressional races.
