Tough Sledding

TOUGH SLEDDING….A Political Action Committee set up to help Republican minority candidates has spent only 8.9% of its funds actually helping minority candidates. What’s their excuse? Henry Bonilla, the PAC’s founder, explains:

“We did the best we could.” In all, 27 minority office-seekers, predominantly Hispanic American, received money, mostly small donations. But Bonilla said it was sometimes difficult to find “good, solid minority candidates to expend the funds on.”

You know, I think he’s probably telling the truth. The supply of good, solid minority candidates willing to run as Republicans even if you pay them is probably pretty limited.

Hard to imagine, isn’t it?
