Dan Logue Vs John Garamendi – Logue has a net $125k and Garamendi has a net 215K.
The fact it is that close should have the DCCC in a tailspin. At +9 dem, this should be a hold for the dems. Garamendi from what I am told is not as popular as he should be in that district.
Or, maybe he’s lazy.
in CD-07 – the Fraud Doctor is sitting on $800k+. When you’re the number one target, it is easy to get the kool-aid drinkers out there.
Doug Ose’s report is lackluster and is quite a bit lower than I and others had expected. We expected him to be in the 750k range. Ose did the usual paper $250k thing to inflate his number – but the net $230k on hand tells the whole story.
Igor Birman sits with a net $106k on hand.
The closeness of Birman to Ose is going to draw fire from the heavy-hitting IE groups in my opinon.
A Review of Ose’s reports shows that he has gone to a lot of his low-hanging fruit. A lot of the donors read like a who’s who of beneficiaries from his votes in Congress.
Elizabeth Emken is sitting on -6k net.
Moderate Republicans Jeff Denham and David Valadao look to be doing just fine in their upside down districts.
Tony Strickland is carrying the $400k he raised for CA26 in to CA25. Buck McKeon was hoping to pick his successor.
In CA26, neither Republican has a whole lot of money for a dem seat. Liberal Republican Jeff Gorrell has $100k in the bank.
in CA45 – I am wondering why Greg Raths and John Moorlach are running. Mimi Walters is burying both of them in money on hand, by over 11 to 1 in both cases.
Gary Miller in CA31 has a warchest
Raul Ruiz has a warchest to defend against Moderate Republican challenger Brian Nestande. This is the seat lost by liberal Republican Mary Bono-Mack.
The most bizarre info of all – is CA-09. Tony Amador who announced with much fanfare has $1200.
