Pre-election campaign finance reports

As noted in the list of incumbents and candidates in the sidebar, all but Senate candidate Paul Rumler and Appellate Judge candidate Lance Peterson have posted their last campaign finance report prior to the primaries which covers the period from the start of the year up to February 19th.

Take a look around and see if you notice anything of interest.

I noticed something. Is Mike Jacobs claiming that he didn't spend any money during this period? Surely he built up some stress that needed to be relieved by some sort of relaxation therapy.

Take a look at all of them. No candidate reports expenditures on a pre-election report. They report those expenses later on after the election when it's required and asked for on the automated forms the government makes you use.

Right now they only report income until after election day when there is another type of report due.

That's the law.

That's right. This close to election, it is the donations that are under most scrutiny. The pre-election report is to disclose any substantial last-minute contributions and ensure they are legal.

What the campaigns do with any last-minute money is usually not considered important at this time.

I would love to see what Rumler is doing with his money.
