The below is straight from the Federal Election Commission, showing campaign finance activity thru 12/31/19 in the 50th Congressional District.
Keep in mind, Darrell Issa’s numbers have not yet been processed by the FEC, but according to Carl DeMaio’s press release posted earlier today on SD Rostra, Issa has raised about $818,000.
UPDATE 11 p.m. — Issa’s subsequently posted press release indicates he raised $782,000 and has $1.6 million cash on hand.
Former candidates such as Sam Abed, Duncan Hunter, Matt Rahm, Bill Wells, and Larry Wilske are not listed below, even though some have prior campaign activity included on the FEC website (some of it significant). Other candidates have what appears to be no fundraising activity, such as Helen Horvath.
Two candidates will make it past the March primary. It will either be a) two Republicans, or b) one Democrat and one Republican. That part is a virtual given.
The final combination of two names is anyone’s guess, but fundraising differences can be very telling. Will the two finalists come from a present field of four, or is it really only three?
