Doc Mumbles Fundraising Stumbles

The slowly-deflating balloon that is Doc Cassidy’s #LASEN campaign just lost a lot more air. According to early reports from the 3rd Q of fundraising numbers, Cassidy raised only $700k in this quarter. By comparison, Mary Landrieu hauled in nearly twice as much at $1.35m.

Cassidy also made a curious reference during his fundraising release, noting he had raised more than former Democrat John Kennedy during Kennedy’s run against Landrieu as a Republican in 2008. Unfortunately, Cassidy failed to note that Kennedy lost that race by more than 5 points.

Cassidy’s has only increased his available cash on hand by $200k by the end of Q3, indicating an extremely-high burn rate at this early point of the race. If he doesn’t right his campaign’s financial ship, he’ll have fallen far behind Landrieu at the critical opening gun of the 2014 race.

This is the latest crack in Cassidy’s status as the anointed-GOP challenger to Senator Landrieu. Just last week, the LAGOP quietly condoned North Louisiana conservative Rep. Alan Seabaugh’s open rumination on entering the race as the “real conservative.” Previously, Cassidy was excluded from a critical gathering of rightwing activists at a conference in New Orleans.

Cassidy’s awkward rightward tilt has produced similarly disappointing results. He was viciously mocked by the Daily Show just last week for his raw hypocrisy over the Government shutdown.
