Clinton's Risen cash and Trump's meager San Diego money

Lopsided county fundraising advantage favored presidential loser until the end

Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton departed the field with the most campaign cash from San Diego County, per data from the Federal Election Commission, reporting a total haul for the October pre-election disclosure period of $531,541 to her Republican rival and president-elect Donald Trump's $139,346.

Late-money Clinton backers included Megan Camaisa, who came up with $2700 on October 19. She's listed as publisher at Del Mar–based Risen Media, a self-described faith-based magazine and movie-making outfit whose October cover features Mel Gibson, the controversial maker of 2004's The Passion of the Christ.

Says Risen of Gibson's latest cinematic undertaking, "In the soon-to-be-released movie, Hacksaw Ridge, the compelling account is told of Desmond Doss, a U.S. Army Medic and devout Seventh-Day Adventist, who was the nation’s first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor for his bravery during the battle of Okinawa in World War II, as he clung to his faith."

According to the Internet Movie Database, Camaisa is currently in post-production on Lost in America, “a documentary film that follows director Rotimi Rainwater, a former homeless youth, as he travels the country to shine a light on the epidemic of youth homelessness in America."

The cast includes Jon Bon Jovi, Patrick Leahy, and Russell Simmons. Director is Rotimi Rainwater, whose previous effort was 2010's Sugar, about his own time on the street. Last summer, Gibson was said to be putting together a sequel to The Passion of the Christ, to be called Risen.

Camaisa, who is on the board of the Rancho Santa Fe Riding Club, is also listed as a producer on 2014's Like a Country Song, a Christian drama starring Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley's father.

Among other October Clinton donors from the county were Lynn Gorguze, wealthy wife of Democratic La Jolla congressman Scott Peters, with $2700, and Bob Scarano, an executive with Tecate Industries, who gave the same.

"With the vision that capacitors could be cost-effectively manufactured in Mexico, the company selected the border town of Tecate, BC, Mexico as the location of their first manufacturing facility for their new company, says the firm's website. "This was one of the first manufacturing arrangements that are known today as a 'maquiladora'; or twin plant facilities." Trump has promised to return such work to the U.S.

Yet another free trader, UCSD professor Peter Cowhey, who has been touting the benefits of the Trump-opposed Trans Pacific Partnership, came up with $2700 for the Clinton cause on October 1.

San Diego, wrote Cowhey earlier this year, "boasts a large service sector, in part thanks to its exceptional climate which supports extensive tourist-related activities. The jobs supported in this sector are insulated from competition with foreign workers, being in essentially non-traded activities. This suggests that downward pressures on wages from potential labor market competition will be very limited. In fact, the prospects of strong growth in export sectors promises to deliver rising real wages for local workers."

Carlsbad’s Combiz Abdolrahimi, an Iranian-American UCLA graduate and Obama administration White House intern, gave the same.

Qualcomm billionaire Irwin Jacobs and wife Joan, longtime big-money sources for Clinton, kicked in another $2700 each on October 5.

Trump's top donor for the October reporting period, with $4700, was Bobby Rogers, chief executive officer of Kurin, Inc., a biotech start-up that raised $2.3 million in a September 23 equity offering, per the San Diego Business Journal. The magazine reported that Rogers and associates sold their previous venture, Ivera Medical, to 3M Corp last year.

"Ivera made I.V. port connector caps, sold under the Curos brand, which are used to act as a barrier to contamination on devices that provide access to I.V. lines," the report says.

"The products complemented 3M’s vascular access products. Kurin’s website states that ‘the creators of Curos have reunited as Kurin to introduce the next triple threat medical innovation.’”

Real estate developer Bob Lichter, earlier a GOP Jeb Bush backer, gave $800.
