Caitlyn Jenner, former Olympic gold medalist and reality TV star, wants to become the next governor of California. To do this, she has hired some pretty big names in campaign strategy.
One of those big names was Brad Parscale, who was demoted by Donald Trump’s campaign manager after a disastrous rally last spring. Jenner’s campaign is now broke. And according to a report from Politico, a significant portion of that money went to Parscale.
Jeremy B. White writes:
“From the start of Jenner’s candidacy to the end of July, the campaign raised approximately $ 747,000 and spent about $ 910,000, leaving their campaign with about $ 156,000 in unpaid bills and about $ 21,000 on the critical final stretch of the Rennens remained. More than a quarter of this money went to the fundraising platform WinRed and to the services of former Trump campaign aide Brad Parscale and former Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer. “
The report continues: “The campaign sent approximately $ 67,000 to Parscale Strategy, LLC, the firm of former Trump campaign strategist Parscale. It spent $ 25,000 on media strategy firm Ari Fleischer Communications. Spendings reported by Parscale Strategy included a $ 1,800 “staff meeting” at Nobu, a posh restaurant in Malibu, and $ 1,300 on a limo service that took Jenner to meetings in Los Angeles. “
Not only does Jenner have no campaign money, the money wasn’t well spent either. In a recent survey it was only 4%.
