Robert Nascenzi, the computer executive who dropped out of the 52nd District primary in the race to take on GOP congressman Brian Bilbray next year, managed to collect a healthy $77,654 in contributions through September 30, according to his federal campaign filing. Donors included venture capitalist Kevin Kinsella ($1000); Justice Department attorney Jeffrey Auerhahn ($750); Tom Compogiannis, chief financial officer of WIS International ($1000); Jay Cohan of Westech Investment Advisors ($500); Biocept, Inc., chief executive Stephen M. Coutts and Jane Coutts ($1000); dentist Doug Disraeli ($1000); venture capitalist and Padres board vice chairman Glenn Doshay ($1000); Sequenom vice president of human resources Alisa Judge ($1000); downtown real estate agent David Marino of Hughes Marino ($1000); and Geoscape founder César Melgoza of Miami, Florida’s Latin Force Group ($2500). Nascenzi said he left the race to make way for fellow Democrat and ex–San Diego city councilman Scott Peters, a centrist who still faces an intraparty challenge from liberal ex–assemblywoman Lori Saldaña. Next year’s primary will be the first under the state’s new run-off system, with the top two contenders, regardless of party, facing each other in the general election.
