A Pennsylvania Senate hopeful says that she “can’t be bought.” Carla Sands, a former Trump adviser, launched her Senate campaign and has boasted that she has financed the majority of the campaign
Fox News reports:
Sands, who was an adviser to former President Trump on his Economic Advisory Council, and eventually ambassador to Denmark, has long been a prolific donor to Republican candidates. She’s now running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, and according to Federal Election Commission records, she’s put $3.1 million of her own money into her campaign so far out of $3.5 million total receipts.
“For years I’ve donated my money to help Republican candidates only to watch them cave when things got tough,” Sands says in the ad, which was first viewed by Fox News.
“I’ve had it with weak politicians and their sorry excuses,” she adds as images of Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Mitt Romney, R-Utah, flash on the screen.
“I approved this message because I can’t be bought and I won’t back down,” she says to close the ad.
Sands is running for the seat left by retiring GOP Sen. Pat Toomey but is already facing a crowded field of candidates also gunning for the Republican nomination.
