Quayle gets late Palin cash; Hulburd takes in Dem money

Jon Hulburd, Ben Quayle

Ben Quayle got the big name. Jon Hulburd got the bigger money.

At least that’s how it went according to the last-minute financial disclosures leading up to today’s election.

Quayle’s campaign reported to federal elections officials Monday (Nov. 1) that it received a $5,000 donation from SarahPAC, the political action committee of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Hulburd, meanwhile, reported six contributions totaling $11,500. Those donations mostly came from political action committees, such as a pro-choice group, United Mine Workers of America and two Democratic groups.

Of course these last-minute infusions pale in comparison to overall fundraising in the race for Arizona’s 3rd Congressional District. Hulburd has dumped $500,000 of his own money into his war chest in recent weeks but still trails the well-oiled Quayle machine in fundraising.

Quayle has taken in more than $2.1 million, while Hulburd has raised about $1.3 million, according to the latest reports.
