Las Vegas, NV – Turns out Danny Tarkanian is just as bad at managing his finances as everyone suspected. According to his latest fundraising report, the failed businessman and perennial candidate managed to rack up a whopping $160,853 in campaign debt. In fact, Tarkanian – who is well-known for not paying his debts in full – now has almost as much campaign debt as he does cash on hand.
Over the FEC’s Quarter 2 filing period from April through June, even though he loaned himself nearly $100,000, Tarkanian still got significantly outraised by his Democratic opponent, Henderson community leader Jacky Rosen.
Meanwhile, Danny Tarkanian’s super PAC “Empower Nevada” – set up by Nevada Treasurer Dan Schwartz – has raised literally $50. Schwartz was finance chair when the Nevada GOP essentially went bankrupt, and he’s spent his time in office being chastised by both parties for knowing nothing about the state budget – so he’s clearly a perfect fit to run this incompetent organization.
