Congressional Campaign War Chests Examined

Between last October and January 1, 24th Congressional District Representative Lois Capps ​— ​running for reelection this year ​— ​raised $245,000, bringing her campaign war chest to $981,250. Challenging Capps for the Democratic nomination is Santa Maria banker Paul Coyne, who raised $60,000, including a $52,000 loan to himself. On the Republican ticket, Justin Fareed, a 25-year-old who played football for Santa Barbara High School and UCLA, raised $60,000 and loaned himself another $50,000. Santa Barbara City Councilmember Dale Francisco, both fiscally and socially conservative, reported raising $26,000 with no loans to himself. Christopher Mitchum has $3,194 remaining in his campaign account.
