This should be quite the spectacle of a campaign if Santos even makes it to 2024. He's raising no money (just $5,333.26 according to the latest FEC filings), with only one contribution from an individual over $200. He also had to return $8000 from disgruntled donors, meaning he's actually operated at a net loss this year. He thinks he can raise between "$500,000 to $750,000 in the second quarter of 2023.” Yeah, sure you can buddy.

Politico had a clever title for their piece on Santos: George Santos’ campaign didn’t spend a dime and managed to lose money. The beleaguered New York Republican is … more beleaguered.

Truth-challenged Long Island Rep. George Santos will announce his reelection campaign Monday in Washington D.C., a source told The Post.

Despite facing multiple calls to resign from both parties over a series of lies about his personal and professional life, the Republican congressman has “called big donors and sat down with supporters and believes he can raise $500,000 to $750,000 in the second quarter of 2023,” said a person close to Santos.

“Many of us Americans are willing to accept all sorts of resurrection, perhaps Representative George Santos will be another,” said entrepreneur Josh Eisen, a top Santos donor — who declined to say whether he would back him again.

Santos is currently facing a House ethics probe stemming in part from his fibs about his background.

There is also a federal investigation into his campaign’s finances.
