Radtke Asks Supporters to Help Fund an RV

Posted July 28, 2011 at 6:21pm

Republican Senate candidate Jamie Radtke wants a recreational vehicle so she can have a rolling advertisement cruising the Virginia highways and byways for the next 15 months.

So she’s asking supporters to help cover the cost of the lease, gas, insurance and signage. She estimates the lease will cost $1,000 per month, insurance will be $300 per month and fuel will be $1,100 per month. Wrapping the vehicle in a campaign sign is a one-time fee of $7,500. Radtke, a tea party leader, is challenging ex-Sen. George Allen for the GOP nomination.

“I need your financial help, today, to make this bus tour a reality,” Radtke said in the fundraising solicitation. “I know in my heart that the launch of this RV tour will be an important milestone in our campaign for U.S. Senate.”
