Pima GOP <3 Republican Darren White

Posted By on Mon, Apr 21, 2008 at 7:57 PM

The Pima County Republican Party has been stocking up on cash lately to boost Senate Prez Tim Bee's campaign against Democratic Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in CD8, mostly because the national GOP doesn't want to put any money into the amateur operation state GOP chair Randy Pullen is running up in Phoenix. (Remember when Karl Rove did a Pima County GOP fund raiser instead of helping out the state party?)

Looks like the Pima GOP has so much money sitting around that they maxed out with a pair of $5,000 contributions to Darren White, a Republican candidate running a tight race for Congress over in New Mexico's First Congressional District. FEC records show the mighty generous $10K was delivered on March 20.

Coincidentally enough, the Republican Campaign Committee of New Mexico appears just as generous when it comes to Bee. Just six days after Pima County invested in White's candidacy, the RCCNM sent two $5,000 checks to Bee's campaign.

The parties would never collude to get around that pesky $10K limit, would they?
