I suppose one way to run for office is to load up your campaign with debt and hope you win.
That seems to be the operating philosophy of Republican Senate hopeful Patricia Phillips. That and spending $7,000 to raise $9,000.
In total, Ms. Phillips appears to be running with around $50,000 in loans, when you consider those taken in advance of the first Quarter of 2011. Seems to me that the Republicans in Loudoun County aren’t exactly lining up behind their chosen candidate to oppose Sen. Mark Herring.
(Meanwhile, Sen. Herring raised more money than any Senate candidate.)
