Mid-Year Reports Show Bilbray Campaign With Sizable Cash Lead over Peters

As reported yesterday, the congressional campaign of ex-San Diego city councilman Scott Peters, fresh from a bruising primary battle with fellow Democrat Lori Saldana, finished the first half of the year with $82,032 of cash in the bank.

That's signifcantly less than the $833,786 reported by GOP incumbent Brian Bilbray on his subsequently filed disclosure statement for June.

That report, posted online by the Federal Election Commission, shows that Bilbray's campaign raised $1,422,960 during the current election cycle through the end of June, and spent $854,770 over the same period.

Donations included $2500 from Madeleine Pickens, wife of Texas wheeler-dealer T. Boone Pickens.

$2500 each came from David Cohen, Howard Appel, James Slattery, Jane Slattery, Murray Rosenthal, and Charles Mikel of Millenium Laboratories, a San Diego-based drug test developer.

Loreen Collins of Del Mar, general counsel to Surefire, a tactical illuminations maker, gave $2500.

San Diego real estate developer Doug Allred gave $3000, as did Bruce Tabb, another local developer.

Elizabeth Wright, of Ashton, Maryland, associate director of public policy and federal relations for Daiichi Sankyo, contributed $500.

Herzog Contracting president Alan Landes of St. Joseph, Missouri kicked in $2500.

On the PAC front, Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. Employee Political Action Committee gave $2,000, and Herzog Contracting Corp. Political Action Committee contributed $5,000.

Abbott Laboratories Employee Political Action Committee came up with $10,000, as did the John Deere PAC.

Bilbray's political funding fortunes also stood to benefit last Friday, when the state GOP and the National Republican Congressional Committee staged a breakfast in Los Angeles, a lunch in San Francisco, and a reception in Silicon Valley with House majority whip Kevin McCarthy, according to an invitation posted online by the Sunlight Foundation's Party Time website.

Called "Hold onto California, Hold onto the House," admission to a single event of the day-long extravaganza ranged from $1,000 an individual attendee to $30,000 for an "event chair."

In this season of MoneyMoneyMoneyMoneyMoneyMoneyMoney, I guess Dems who want to unload the lobbyists' friend Brian Bilbray are going to have to shell out to support even personally wealthy Scott Peters for Congress.
