Leaked Memo Tells Senate Candidate To Spend 80 Percent Of Her Time Raising Money

by - July 29, 2014

campaign strategy memo prepared for Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn last year and leaked online on Monday reveals far more than just the inner workings of one high-profile Senate campaign. Details in the memo illuminate the dominant role of fundraising in the political world. "Hitting our targets will require us to prioritize fundraising above all else and to focus the candidate’s time on it with relentless intensity," the memo, written in December 2013 and leaked to National Review, states in a section on the campaign's finance plan. To reach the campaign's target of raising $15 million to $20 million for the entire race, the memo urges that Nunn's time be budgeted almost exclusively for fundraising, at least until the tail end of the race. Nunn, who would face no serious competition in the Democratic primary, should spend between 70 and 80 percent of her time raising money from January through September, according to the memo. Only in October does the recommended fundraising time drop to 50 percent.
