Dear fellow tax hikers, pre-primary campaign finance reports were due yesterday and the news for us wasn't good.
Rick Bryan: $25,543 cash on hand. $13,116 debts owed. $7,000 loans outstanding.
Jonathan Dever: $26,847 cash on hand. $0 debts owed. $0 loans outstanding.
For weeks we were assured by Tax Hikin' Rick Bryan supporters that Rick is the one who raised all the money. They told us that Dever wasn't even running a real campaign. But it turns out he is the one with most of the unencumbered cash on hand to spend in the final stretch run.
We call on all you tax hikers to work hard for our 2011 Tax Hiker of the Year Rick Bryan in these final 10 days. Tell the voters about Rick Bryan's 25% Earnings Tax hike, the Sales Taxes he's tried to raise, the $75 million park he's building, the Cincinnati Streetcar he helped fund. Ricky is our best chance to elect a great tax-and-spend Republican.
