Evan McMullin, who ran for president as a “Never Trump” Republican last year, owes around $670,000 to campaign vendors, an incredible amount of debt for a candidate who received just over 730,000 votes in November.
But McMullin only has about 10 grand in cash to pay off the bills.
“From what I know, (the McMullin campaign office) does not have any capability or plans to pay all the vendors they still owe money,” said Tanner Leatham, the owner of Gathering Inc, a Utah-based political consultant firm, told The Salt Lake Tribune.
“They have told me they cannot pay us what they owe,” he glumly added.
The $670,000 is owed to as many as 7 different companies, according to the McMullin campaign’s Federal Election Commission filing.
In 2016, McMullin bad-mouthed The Donald to anyone who would listen, and brashly predicted victory while touting his “successful” fund-raising effort on the morning of November 8th. He lost his home state of Utah in a landslide and barely registered in other states.
