The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is making it clear it’s spending to win in CD-31.

The group has reported to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), that it has spent another $82,241.46 on campaign advertising against Paul Chabot (R-Rancho Cucamonga).

To date, the DCCC has spent nearly $200,000 in the hotly-contested election. Their latest expenditure was made on September 11.

The national organization is playing the bad guy, while their candidate, Pete Aguilar (D-Redlands), spends his campaign funds on positive advertising. It’s a common tactic in contested races.

Interestingly, there currently is still no sign of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) helping out Chabot.

Federal filings are void of any outside help for Chabot, with just 41 days remaining until Election Day.

The election will decide which of the men will replace retiring Congressman Gary Miller.

Currently CD-31 has a 6-point democrat registration edge over republican.
