Wagner’s Fundraising Numbers Targeted

National Journal’s Reid Wilson reports on the scuffle between Reince Priebus’s and Ann Wagner’s supporters over their candidates’ fundraising records. Over the weekend, Randy Ruedrich, the chairman of the Alaska GOP and a supporter of Wagner, noted that $9 million of the $14 million the Wisconsin GOP raised under Priebus consisted of RNC transfers. In response, Pat Brady, the chairman of the Illinois GOP and a supporter of Priebus, attacked Wagner’s record as Missouri GOP chief. Wilson writes:

When Wagner served as chairman of the Missouri Republican Party, she received $8 million in RNC transfers, Illinois Republican Party chairman Pat Brady told RNC members in response. “Your attack against Reince is ludicrous and disingenuous. He did an outstanding job raising money in [Wisconsin], and I am sure Ann did the same in [Missouri],” Brady wrote. “Stop the petty attacks; it’s a waste of everyone’s time.”
