Moffett dials back expectations on money, lowering goal from $2 million to $200,000

While Republican candidate for governor Phil Moffett has racked up a number of endorsements lately, he continues play expectations limbo by lowering the bar on how much money he aims to raise.

At the beginning of the week, his campaign site included a goal of collecting $300,000 by May to compete with rival candidates David Williams — the Republican Senate president — and Bobbie Holsclaw, who is the Jefferson County Clerk.

But Moffett’s online “moneybomb” on Monday and Tuesday added just $12,500 to his campaign coffers. By Wednesday, the financial goal on the site was $200,000.

That is one-tenth of the amount Moffett said he expected to reach when he was on Pure Politics on Nov. 11, 2010.
