(While I am normally hard on Leader Jones. In this instance Jones has stepped up to the plate. His PAC spent $57,958 this election cycle. This is about the same he spent in 2010 which was $61,448. And significantly more than what they spent in 2008.
Jones deserves credit for what he's done with the PAC. Real credit, and I'll give it to him when it is due. - promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno)
It is disappointing when our Republican leadership fails. Under our state law, Republicans are only allowed one PAC to support our House candidates. The House Minority Leader is responsible for the PAC. That would be Brad Jones.
Last year we lost three Republicans in the House after working so hard to double our numbers in 2010. One of them was due to redistricting. The other two lost narrow races. You have to place the blame on Brad Jones for these losses. Recent campaign reports show that the PAC under Brad Jones' leadership finished the election cycle with $7000 cash on hand. He kept $7000 in the bank instead of helping our candidates.
We had two Republicans lose and he has money in the bank. As you know the GOP candidates were targeted by the Democrat Super PAC. Jones should have spent it all to help these freshmen Republicans. This is a case of failed leadership.
More to follow on why Jones doesn't help fellow Republicans.
