Travis Allen would have you believe he is the premier conservative in the race for governor. We’ve seen that he does not pay his bills, garnering some $42,000+ in Tax Liens.
Travis Allen is carrying debt from his 2012 Assembly run, still, 6 years later. Try $13,091 in debt. Who is still waiting on payment? <<< Click the hyperlink for the Secretary of State’s Report
Travis Allen is carrying massive debt from his 2018 Assembly Campaign account – showing $82,520 in debt against a meager $7400 in cash, a deficit of $75K
He starts $88,000 in the hole unless he has no intention of paying his bills.
Cox’s cash on hand puts him far ahead of GOP rival Travis Allen, who entered 2018 more than $200,000 in debt. The other top Republican in the race, former Rep. Doug Ose, won’t have to disclose finances until the spring because he entered the contest only this month.
He reported raising $518,446 in 2017, on top of the $3 million the Rancho Santa Fe businessman donated to his campaign.
Travis Allen used his failed gas tax measure to raise $368K, not bad until you look at his report. Since many of his supporters think the LA Times made the numbers up, similar to the above links to data straight off of the actual filings, here we are again with a copy of the actual report. WHOOPS. 135,585 in cash, and 342,850 in the hole. For those of you scoring at home that pretty close to $207,000 in the hole.
What is $207K + 95k? 302K. This is called a financial train-wreck and anyone working for him or doing business with him should take serious pause.
The reality is that Mr. Allen has left the two old accounts open, one for 6 years as he has neglected or intended to not pay back the debts in either of them. The fact that his governor account is in the hole $200K when Mr. Cox is sitting on $2MM begs the obvious question – is facebook the only place Travis Allen will be campaigning? Will he get invited to future debates where he can try to earn media by fighting with the moderator? That’s it, Facebook and making bombastic moves at pubic forums appear to the the Travis Allen strategy as it does not appear he can afford the slate mail cards he alleges to have put deposits in on.
When you add to this that Travis Allen has a horrific attendance record to the legislature, missing large numbers of important votes over the years – the tax liens, the campaign debt and the lackadaisical attendance to the job he got elected to and paid for suggest a man who is neither a conservative by life choices nor ready for the Governor’s office.
