October 25, 2022
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — McMaster-Evette’s campaign and Joe Cunningham’s campaign released their financial reports in the final quarter before the general election.
According to the McMaster-Evette press release, a record-setting fundraising total of more than $2.1 million was raised, with 90 percent of donors from South Carolina.
The McMaster-Evette campaign has raised more than $7.6 million and more than $2 million in cash on hand.
“Governor McMaster has delivered for the people of South Carolina,” said McMaster-Evette campaign spokesman Brandon Charochak.
“Thanks to the governor’s hard work, the people of the state are responding – thanking him for his work, whether it is keeping businesses open during COVID or fighting for pay raises for teachers and law enforcement – and making sure he has the resources needed to tell the story of what this work has meant.”
Joe Cunningham’s campaign stated it raised $1.2 million in the last quarter, roughly one million short of McMaster-Evette.
However, Cunningham’s fundraising numbers are not verified according to the South Carolina State of Ethics Commission’s requirements.
The South Carolina State Ethics Commission requires a pre-election report to be filed by candidates no later than 15 days.
“This is becoming a pattern of behavior for Joe Cunningham. First, he refused to disclose who is actually paying him and what they pay him to do. Now, he is flouting state law, in failing to disclose his donors,” said McMaster-Evette campaign spokesman Brandon Charochak.
