Big money is starting to flow in the race to represent the 31st Congressional District.
Two major Super-PAC’s weighed in heavily for Congressman Gary Miller (R-Diamond Bar) Wednesday afternoon, according to Federal Election Commission filings.
The National Association of Realtors Political Action Committee reported expending $396,300 for consulting and TV advertising.
The National Association of Realtors Congressional Fund reported spending $37,300 for consulting, Internet ads and logistics.
The new expenditures bring the total for the Congressional Fund to $173,300.
The current total of independent expenditures in support of Miller is now at $569,600.
Miller’s primary opponent, State Senator Bob Dutton (R-Rancho Cucamonga), is benefiting from a local PAC calling itself Inland Empire Taxpayers for Jobs.
The new PAC is currently spending $55,000 it has received to support Dutton. The PAC’s funding is primarily from Ted Dutton, the candidate’s father.
