Just how much HAS the RNC spent on President Trump's legal fees, TT?

Over $5.5 million last year.

Another reason to not donate to parties and PAC's, you have no control over how it gets spent.

Yes, BLOWTARD, that's the figure I came up with.
Can't understand why the RNC paid it, though. In a just world, it would be coming out of Robert Mueller's witch hunt budget.

In Brummett's own words:In the 1990s in this same 2nd District, the local Democratic Party tended to favor a perfectly fine candidate who'd come up through its Young Democrat ranks--Mark Stodola, now mayor of Little Rock. But it turned out that a doctor with a law degree who was a Marine veteran of Vietnam and exuded personal integrity--Vic Snyder--was better at getting regular people to develop spontaneous admiration for him and vote for him.
Tucker's political path is very much like Mark Stodola. A lawyer, career Democrat who has spent his time coming up the ranks. He's from a politically connected family with ties to the elite sector of Little Rock.
Since the 1990's population growth has been stagnant in Pulaski county while the surrounding counties have double digit growth. And those folks vote. Look at the last two "politically connected" democrat candidates who ran against French Hill. While they can carry Pulaski county due to the yellow dog democrats living there, they got their ass handed to them in the counties where education, quality of life, and schools were their priorities.
Democrats and wishful thinkers posting here had better pay attention.
There is at least one of the democrat candidates that places people over party and his name is not TUCKER. He's not like Tucker who is looking to follow in the footsteps of other democrat who used a political office as a stepping stone to bigger and better. Sadly, he has little change of getting the nomination.

Unlike the religious persecution in Salem, Mueller's so-called witch hunt is revealing a coven of metaphorical witches, which brings into serious question the validity of the term witch hunt in this context.

.."Gwen Combs,organizer of the women's march in Little Rock "

You mean that clown show that was meant to be a pro-abortion rally actually was "organized" ?

The pro-abortion rally that got pictured in the Little Rock paper showing an old woman laughing hysterically about abortion and a dufus guy sucking on his fingers trying to whistle ?

Gwen Combs should use that picture on her campaign posters with the statement....." see what I organized "
