Fundraising Numbers for Attorney General—Laslovich Leads All Candidates

Perhaps the most interesting financial numbers from this week’s campaign reports come from the Attorney General’s race, where Jesse Laslovich led all three candidates, raising more this quarter than any candidate for Attorney General has raised during a primary, even beating Steve Bullock’s total in 2008.

Laslovich raised $61,430 for the quarter, outpacing primary opponent Pam Bucy, who raised $40,254 dollars and loaned her campaign another $10,000—on the final day of the reporting quarter, which certainly suggests a desire to make her numbers look stronger before they hit the press.

Both candidates seem to be enjoying broad support across the state, suggesting both that Democrats are energized and that this will continue to be a closely-fought race. Laslovich certainly has more to celebrate in this first round of fundraising, though.

On the other hand, Republican candidate Jim Shockley’s campaign finance numbers have to be making Republicans nervous, as the state senator had a dismal quarter. Shockley’s report suggests he’s raised $54,000, but over $50,000 dollars of that total are a loan from himself to his campaign.

That kind of terrible quarter, the worst of any major party candidate running for statewide office, has to be making another Tim Fox run even more likely than it was before.

Tonight: The race for governor.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard.
