Election 2010: Latest campaign finance reports issued for local races

LAKE COUNTY – Fundraising in the two most contested races in this year's primary election has gained considerable momentum over the last two months, according to the most recent campaign finance reports.


Lake County Registrar of Voters Diane Fridley collects the information from candidates in all local elections. The information is public.


The most recent reporting period is for March 18 through May 22.


For both the district attorney and sheriff races, approximately $76,254.78 was raised by the six candidates during that two-month period. For the year so far, they've raised approximately $90,212, including a total of $26,961 in loans.


Expenditures for all six candidates in the two races totaled $54,801.72 for the two-month reporting period, and $61,411.82 for the year to date.


In the district attorney race, the single highest amount of actual cash – excluding loans – was raised during the reporting period by Don Anderson, who brought in $9,304.78, followed by $4,338 by Doug Rhoades and $4,283 for Jon Hopkins.


When counting all funding sources – including nonmonetary contributions and loans – Anderson also led, with $10,344.78, followed by Rhoades with $7,616 and Hopkins with $6,403.


Hopkins has raised the most funds overall of the year to date, with $11,722 – including $2,000 he has loaned himself – followed by Anderson with $11,004.78 and Rhoades with $9,066.


Anderson spent $11,220.92 for the reporting period and $11,360.60 year-to-date, followed by Hopkins with $9060.60 for the reporting period, $10.943.43 year-to-date, and Rhoades, $3,552 for the reporting period, $3,687.83 year-to-date.


In the sheriff's race, incumbent Rod Mitchell brought in the most cash from March to May with $23,782, followed by Francisco Rivero with $4,452 and $300 for Jack Baxter.


Rivero reported raising the most money for the year, approximately $30,643.22, of which he loaned himself $24,961. Mitchell reported a year-to-date fundraising figure of $25,431, followed by Baxter with $2,345.


Regarding expenditures, the three sheriff candidates spent the following: Mitchell, $15,888.91 for the reporting period, $18,046.17 year-to-date; Rivero, $14,575.52 for the reporting period, $16,795.81 year-to-date; and Baxter, $503.77 for the reporting period, $577.98 year-to-date.


Reports for the District 2 and 3 supervisorial races, and the county superintendent of schools will be published later this week.


The candidates will be required to file a late report, for the period covering May 23 through June 7.
