Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst has raised only about $1.6 million since late February, but lent himself nearly twice that while attempting to beat back a primary challenge from state Sen. Dan Patrick.
Campaign finance records released Tuesday show Dewhurst collecting $1.65 million in donations from Feb. 23 to last week. That's far less than he'd promised to raise. Dewhurst also pumped $3 million of his own money into his campaign in April and May, after previously lending it $2 million.
Including earlier loans, Dewhurst's campaign now is carrying nearly $5.4 million in debts.

Dewhurst ran the sleaziest campaign against Ted Cruz I have ever seen
Dewhurst, you’re off to the dustpan of history. You’ve advanced too many progressive ideas and agenda items, you’ve allied with progressive DimocRATS too often and you’ve obstructed agenda items of constitutional conservatives too many times to count.
Enjoy your retirement out of the limelight.
By the way, ANYONE donating ANY amount of money to Dewhurst’s campaign is on a fool’s errand.
He paid way too much for his laughably bad TV ads. They look like a parody of Dirty Campaign Ads.
Dan Patrick is not the perfect candidate, but he's also not one of the Austin GOP insiders.
Good Luck David!
If you donate $0.01, it costs them more to process it than the donation itself.
He is a sleazy RINO
This will be a huge loss for the GOPe - bigger than losing a Senate seat. The Lt. Gov. has significant legislative power in Texas and can do far more to further a conservative agenda than your typical Senator in DC
That snarky, hateful half-latina he let carry his message was a monstrous mistake: in the newest ad she’s more come-hither than viper-venom spitter.
I like Patrick’s catching the ‘kitchen sink’ ad.. this is starting to feel a lot like Cruz v. Dewhurst deja-vu.
Yep. We’re getting the same sleazy Dewberry flyers, too....
Dan Patrick faced bankruptcy
Dan Patrick hired illegals to replace windows at his business
Dan Patrick throws rocks at pigeons
A lot of people don’t know or remember that a Houston Aryan Brotherhood with big cartel ties tried to kill Patrick a few years ago, shooting up the Capitol, demanding access to his offices.
If Dan’s enemies are Mexican cartels and skinheads, I think we got the right guy.
I haven’t heard/seen the kitchen sink ad. I’ll look for it.
This is all you need to know about Dewhurst. He tried to circumvent the law to get a relative out of jail.
I don't like Patrick even more.
Dewhurst sounds drunk on that call.
Interesting that he raised SO LITTLE from the outside, given his position. I suspect that Rove and company have already given up on him and moved on to other conservatives to try to take down.
