Is Campaign Money For Racist North Dakota Congressman Drying Up? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chet   

IMG_1077[UPDATED (in red)] North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer has been facing criticism across the State of North Dakota and across the country for racist comments he made at a meeting in Bismarck a few weeks ago.  Many people knew of Cramer's views in this regard long before that rally rant, however.  With the campaign disclosure information recently made available online, you have to wonder if his former supporters are viewing Cramer as more of a liability than anything else.  Let's look at the numbers from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) website:

So Cramer has raised $43,111.00 in the first full quarter after being elected (see line 6.a., above). That's less than $14,500 per month. That's quite a bit less than $500 per day raised by a United States Congressman.  That doesn't seem like much.

How does that compare to former Congressman Rick Berg, the unpopular Fargo slumlord?  Let's take a look at that:

BergFinance

(SOURCE)

So in Berg's first full quarter after being elected, he raised $163,337.38 in campaign contributions (see line 6.a., above).  So Berg raised just over $54,400 per month; more than Cramer raised in the entire three-month period.  

Berg raised 3.8 times as much during the comparable period of time the first quarter of in his one term.  

So I'm wondering why this is. Do you suppose it's because people are quickly figuring out what a racist, radical liability Cramer is?  Or is it something else?

Thoughts?

UPDATE:  Perhaps it's just a national trend.  Perhaps all the deeply unpopular radical racist Republicans are having a hard time raising money.  See The Huffington Post article on this.]

I'm not sure what to think of this but my thoughts are Cramer is like many other freshman congressman who are still getting their feet wet in DC.

I also think the GOP fundraising base is still dealing with the unfortunate re-election of Obama. They are bummed out; I know I am. That being said, I would LOVE it, if Cramer, perhaps one of the most arrogrant human beings on the planet, would be sent back to Bismarck in two years. I believe, he is a victim of his own ego and that of his wife who believe's she is kind of a big deal. Together, they are two of the phoniest folks in ND. Perhaps at DC fundraisers, that is being observed.
