Written by  // Tuesday, 14 December 2010 13:46 //

According to the AP, “The state Democratic Party's political action committee filed its most recent campaign fundraising report Monday with the state ethics administration office.

In the final three weeks of the Nov. 2 election cycle, the state Democratic Party poured $770,000 into Fayard's campaign - 70 percent of its spending on state races during the period.

The report shows members of the Fayard family gave at least $260,000 to the party while it was putting money into Fayard's race.”

During and days after the November election, some critics of Fayard and the Democratic party suggested the Fayard family was funding the Democratic Party as part of a questionable way to contribute to the Fayard campaign.

However, some supporters of both Fayard and the Democratic Party have claimed that Fayard is a rising star and that she was the only Democratic candidate  with any real chance to win an election.  Also, supporters contend that the Fayard family has been a long-time supporters of the Democratic Party and candidates.

Fayard lost the campaign to former Louisiana Senator, Jay Dardenne, who previously had been Louisiana Secretary of State prior to the elections.

Fayard will be on the panel of Politics With A Punch on Thursday.
