Even with his faults, John Hostettler would be far, far superior to Dan Coats as the Republican nominee. His campaign is not telling the truth but his voting record is far more conservative than that of Coats. Coats seems to exemplify all that can go wrong with a conservative candidate who sticks his toe into Washington and decides he REALLY likes the water.
Dan Coats waited until the last minute to file his FEC campaign finance report, so it does not yet show up online.
Where did Coats get his money and why did he wait so long to file?
There's evidence on the report that with his 24-day delay in filing, he may have owned stock in other companies as well, but sold them off. With only four days left, it's hard to prove.
It's also interesting to note that Coats owns stock in Suntrust Bank in Atlanta and Bank of America; especially since his lobbying firm helped to lobby for the Banking Bailout.
The article below also points out that Hostettler and...have not filed their financial disclosure forms. Hostettler continues to attack, while still refusing to obey the law and be transparent with the public about his personal finances. Maybe today?
Please see article below. Since going to press both Don Bates and Richard Behney have filed and there is still no record of John Hostettler having filed that I can find or see on the FEC site:
