I have a theory. I think the media, well really the people that own media, really kicked into high gear in 2016 the idea that “news” was the way around campaign finance laws. If you paid CNN for the positive coverage they did on Hillary at ad rates it'd be like a billion dollars.Why does this guy keep getting treated like he's news? He's just some jackass who lost to Ted Cruz. Hundreds of candidates lost in 2018, they aren't all getting regular articles in all the rags.
What's worst is it had Texas plates meaning they could vote.It's like Ohioans in my state. If you like your shitty state so much that you have to broadcast at every possible time that you're from there, go the fuck back.
Yeah, you can't funnel all of that to family and friends with just a Senate run. Much easier to do when it can be spent all over the place and the field is such a crowded mess that no one will notice, especially when you drop out early enough that the opposition doesn't bother to go digging.So that's what he saved the 80% of his unspent Senate campaign fund (~60 million) in anticipation of.
Well... geez that's a lot of dumb...
