Tarkanian faces 2012 campaign funding, charity questions

News

A candidate for Congress faced questions Monday about charity and political fundraising dating back to a 2012 campaign bid for Congress.  Danny Tarkanian, a Republican seeking the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Dean Heller, apparently used funds originally borrowed from a charity to boost his campaign accounts. 

During his recent campaign, Tarkanian has cast himself as the only pro-Donald Trump conservative in the race for U.S. Senate this year. The latest race is the sixth race Tarkanian has run for via state or federal office since 2004. 

But the questions about finances stem from his 2012 race for the Fourth Congressional District. 

Politics now co-host Steve Sebelius has been following the money.
