Campaign donors

2012

On Jan. 30, 2012, Wingfield reported raising $204,000 for his congressional campaign. The following day, it was reported that at least half of that was self-funding that came from a personal loan. According to a report in Politico, campaigns historically would announce how much of that funding was directly from loans. Wingfield said that had had no intention to mislead.[5]
