Congressman Joe Baca (D-Rialto) has a significant fundraising advantage over State Senator Gloria Negrete-McLeod (D-Chino) in the 35th Congressional District.
Latest campaign finance reports for the 2011-12 election cycle filed with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) show the following as of March 31, 2012.
Contributions Expenses In Out Cash on Hand Debt Baca $ 516,998 $ 393,807 $ 247,656 $ 9,971 Negrete-McLeod $ 153,690 $ 43,899 $ 109,791 $ 50,000 .
Campaign finance restrictions at the federal level have obviously handicapped Negrete-McLeod, who has a significant unavailable war-chest in her state campaign committee.
