Laura Ingraham is not running for Senate, despite a PAC that is raising money for her “campaign.”
The conservative radio talk show host, author and political commentator warned her fans in a tweet Tuesday “NOT to give a DIME to the PrincipledPAC” which is trying to scam them.
PAC TROLLS: Tell everyone NOT to give a DIME to the PrincipledPAC run by some guy named Reilly O’Neal, supposedly for my “Senate run”
— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) April 25, 2017
The Principled Leadership Project declares its mission is to “replace the career politicians who only pay lip service to our values” with conservative leaders “who have the backbone” to stand against the Washington elite, according to their website.
Ingraham noted that the PAC is run by “some guy named Reilly O’Neal” who has been promoting her “Senate run” for some time.
@IngrahamAngle Yeah he’s been at it for weeks….
