Former Secretary of State Karen Handel, who lost a bid for the Republican gubernatorial nomination earlier this month, is reaching out to supporters one more time for money.
Handel just sent out an email saying she didn’t know what she would do next, but that she will “remain involved in the political arena.”
“But before I can look ahead, I must call on my friends one last time,” Handel wrote. “As we close down our campaign, we do have some minimal debt to take care of.
“Our campaign never had the benefit of being the most well-funded. Ours was a grassroots operation of individuals like you who only wanted to see good government, a change to the same old way of doing things, and real leadership. Can I call on you one last time to make a donation to cover our last remaining campaign expenses? Any amount will help us close down our campaign and begin moving forward.”
Handel staffers said they don’t know the exact amount of the debt but repeated that it’s “minimal.” If she receives enough to pay off her debt, Handel could use any excess money to give to other Republican candidates who have races this fall.
