Pence’s Soft Fund-Raising Casts Doubt On His Debate Eligibility

Former Vice President Mike Pence’s campaign and super political action committee (PAC) raised $3.85 million in the second quarter of this year, casting doubt on his debate eligibility.
Over the first three weeks of his campaign, Pence raised $1.1 million via his campaign directly and $2.6 million via his super PAC, a Pence advisor told Politico Friday. Pence has been in the race since June 7 of this year.
The lack of funding has caused some to doubt whether Pence qualifies for the first Republican Debate in August, according to the Washington Post. Candidates are required to have 40,000 unique donors and poll over 1% in three qualifying national polls to be eligible for the first debate.
