It’s been tough sledding on the money front for San Bernardino County District Attorney Mike Ramos in his bid for a fifth term in office.

Official filings with the Registrar of Voters on Thursday show that Ramos raised just $29,043.36 since January 1.

That’s stunning for an incumbent like Ramos, who’s been pandering to voters in the media for years.

Ramos, who only has $59,822 in remaining cash on hand, has been pleading with local business owners and defense attorneys to help him raise money. However those calls have fallen on deaf ears.

The four-term incumbent’s opponent, Attorney/Law Professor Jason Anderson, who was a formally a Deputy District Attorney in Ramos’ office for seventeen years, raised $140,716 in the same period.

Anderson currently has $93,264 in cash on hand.
