Perry Burned Through A Ton Of Cash
By the time he dropped out of the Presidential race two weeks ago, Rick Perry had apparently spent nearly all the money he’d raised:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry burned through the bulk of a once-sizable campaign war chest late last year in what became an increasingly desperate attempt to right his listing — and ultimately doomed — presidential campaign, federal financial disclosures released late Monday show.
Though he raised more than $20 million overall during 2011, Perry raised less than $2.9 million of that amount between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, federal records indicate, as disastrous debate performances and plummeting poll numbers crippled his fundraising efforts.
Perry’s campaign had more than $15 million cash on hand in early October. By the year’s end, that dwindled to less than $3.77 million.
This alone should qualify the Rick Perry for President campaign as one of the biggest flops in modern political history.
