Trump can't afford to visit Arizona

The ‘pay your bills’ candidate comes up short
Trump’s decision to forgo a visit to Arizona may also signal business owners’ waning patience with the former president’s aversion to paying bills. During his previous visits, Trump wasn’t billed for his use of venues and city services like on-site law enforcement until after his rally. As a result, his campaign left a trail of unpaid invoices from Tucson to Prescott totaling roughly $150,000.

While cities like Tucson, Phoenix and Mesa, are still awaiting payments, Prescott Valley eventually agreed to foot the $25,000 bill for his July 2022 visit. The pattern seems to have incentivized venues to ask for payment up-front, resulting in Trump abandoning the state altogether.

And if the finances of the Trump campaign and the Republican Party are any indication, a trip to Arizona anytime soon isn’t likely: the two have a combined $45 million in cash, less than half of Biden and the Democratic Party’s $97 million war chest.

“We are two weeks into the general election and Donald Trump can’t raise money, is hiding at his country club, and is letting convicts and conspiracy theorists take over his campaign,” the Biden campaign said in a statement. “That is not a winning strategy.”

A large portion of Trump’s fundraising haul isn’t being directed to his campaign, but his legal fees. $55 million in campaign contributions were used to pay for Trump’s array of court cases in 2023, and in January, his campaign spent $2.6 million more than it took in, leaving little room for expenses like rallies in one of the most hotly-contested battleground states in the 2024 election.
Can't pay his bills, can't visit a battleground state! :lol :lol :lol

BUT THE POLLSSSSSSS!!!!


Voting for Trump is dumber than playing Russian Roulette with fully loaded chambers.

It doesn't surprise me much that Prescott rolled over for Trump (by the way, here's your "I learned something new today" tidbit: Prescott is pronounced the same way you would say biscuit.) There's a lot of red desert rats in those surrounds. Trump would go out of his way to stiff Tucson, blue, cool and soon to be my hometown. Mesa is not much more than a burb of Phoenix, but has greatly benefitted from Biden's USA-made microprocessor initiative, so much so that we were hard pressed to get so much as a Tupperware bowl of the concrete in Tucson, it was all going up north for pouring pads for the chip plants.

I guess this is just to say the only way to deal with any pol is money up front, no refunds.

Cash upfront, when hasn't that been the case?

Sadly, he has the cash to visit Grand Rapids next week.

Thankfully, I'll be far, far away in the Caribbean! :)
