Dan Maes's $500,000-in-a-day fundraising goal falls over $400,000 short, spokesman says

Dan Maes's embattled campaign for governor has been perpetually short of funds. With that in mind, the Republican nominee's finance committee sent out a release last week declaring the intention to raise $500,000 in a single day, September 17. How close did they come? Not very. Maes campaign spokesman Nate Strauch acknowledges that the amount collected fell short of six figures.
