Thank goodness! I was worried we would no longer be hearing from actual Republican candidate for something E.W. Jackson now that he was soundly trounced in that thing he was running for. I should have known that it was just a stepping stone to
bigger and better grifts
Jackson, 61, said his new PAC will focus on a wide range of issues, from [conservative thing Jackson wouldn't shut up about during his campaign] to [other conservative thing Jackson wouldn't shut up about during his campaign].
"I'm starting a PAC" is a nice, terse way of telling people they should continue to send you their money for ambiguous reasons. It's very much like running a church, which is why there tends to be a lot of overlap between people who want you to send money because Jesus said so and people who want you to send money because send it, that's why. Jackson doesn't quite have the separation down himself:
“People have been asking me, am I going to run for anything,” he said in a speech Saturday afternoon. “I’m going back to the answer before I was running for anything in the first place: I’m running for Jesus right now, and that’s enough. If anything changes, you’ll be the first to know.”
Jackson paid for a hospitality suite Friday night at The Homestead resort, something only people looking to run for office or stay relevant do.
A zing from the Politico reporter, even? Oh, this new E.W. venture ought to be fun to watch.
