Strong Fundraising Tally of $1.6 Million Adds to National Interest, Key Endorsements and Favorable Polls San Diego

San Diego – Continuing to show an impressive fundraising pace, Carl DeMaio announced today that his campaign for Congress raised over $410,000 in the first quarter – bringing his campaign’s tally to over $1.6 million cycle-to-date.

With more than 7 months to go before the November 2014 election, DeMaio sits with more than $1.2 million in cash-on-hand. The tally does not include any funds provided by DeMaio himself.

Most notably, more than half of DeMaio’s contributions this quarter came from online vehicles.

DeMaio’s online and digital efforts have drawn national media attention – including coverage of his “New Generation Republican” ad and his spoofs of pop-culture staples House of Cards and Lindsay Lohan. DeMaio’s digital campaigns have not only resulted in thousands of views, but have generated thousands in contributions.

“I’m grateful to receive this strong support, which I believe reflects both my record of getting fiscal reforms done in San Diego and my more inclusive vision for the future as a ‘new generation Republican,'” DeMaio said.

Early polling shows DeMaio with substantial leads over incumbent Scott Peters — with two separate polls showing DeMaio up 10 and 9 points. More importantly, both polls show DeMaio winning the key demographics of independents, women, youth and latinos.

DeMaio has also received a slew of key local endorsements in his first month in the campaign – including the New Majority of California and the Lincoln Club of San Diego. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy both contributed to DeMaio.

DeMaio carried the 52nd District with 58% of the vote in 2012 in his race for Mayor, whereas Scott Peters won the seat by less than 2 points. To learn more about Carl DeMaio and his campaign for Congress, visit, or interact with Carl on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

  1. …and the other half was raised in West Hollywood, Maimi Beach, and Palm Springs…long known as bastions of Republican thought and ideals.

    Wake up Republicans!

  2. FF: Can you ask KJ if they stopped sending press releases out? We’ll post ’em if we get ’em.

  3. Thanks, yes, we have her as the contact. It appears we haven’t received any press releases or other materials for some time.

  4. Many catch his video releases..this one is a particularly poignant one for all Republicans.

    Why won’t CD debate Jorgensen? What is he afraid of? He looks scared…we need people of fortitude…not people who hide!

    Post these…they are video releases that give one a much more accurate depiction of a candidate than writing one’s own posts on SD Rostra and referring to oneself in the 3rd person.

    Hope all is well! 🙂
