Laura Ingraham of FOX News is not running for Senate in 2018. If you see an ad or solicitation for a donation for her campaign, ignore it. The Daily Caller reached out to Ingraham who confirmed this.
From the report:
‘Totally Fraudulent’ PAC Soliciting Donations For A Laura Ingraham Senate Run That Isn’t Happening
A shady Republican political action committee (PAC) is asking supporters of Fox News host Laura Ingraham for money to help support her 2018 run for Senate.
There’s just one problem: Ingraham has made clear that she’s not running for Senate and has repeatedly warned her supporters to be wary of scam PACs using her name to solicit donations.
The PAC, Conservative Freedom Fighters, is asking Ingraham supporters for donations between $25 and $1,000 to support the fictional Senate run. In an email to The Daily Caller, Ingraham called the PAC “totally fraudulent” and said it “represents everything people hate about politics.”
“I’m not running for Senate and no one should give this PAC a cent,” she said.
In emails, the PAC hypes Ingraham as a conservative challenger to Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine. Fundraising emails ask supporters to “help elected Laura Ingraham to the U.S. Senate” or “help Laura Ingraham defeat Tim Kaine.”
It’s unfortunate that this happens sometimes but at least this scam has been identified before it could do too much damage.
