The most recent campaign disclosure report for San Diegans for Nathan Fletcher - Mayor 2012, posted online earlier today by the San Diego city clerk's office, reveals a virtual Blue Book of La Jolla contributors to the cause of the ex-GOP Assemblyman, who split from his party earlier in the campaign, pronouncing himself an independent.

And, despite its name, the committee also gathered plenty of cash from out-of-town corporate interests.

San Francisco's Blue Shield of California gave $10,000.

Vista's Robert Carter, general partner in the Bicycle Casino of Los Angeles, kicked in $5,000.

William Koman of the Koman Group in St. Louis, gave $10,000.

Biggest local dollars came from Bridgepoint Education CEO Andrew Clark, with $20,000, and Robert Price, son of the late retail magnate Sol Price, with $25,000.

In all, the committee, "domiciled" in Sacramento, according to its statement of organization, raised $122,500, spent about $230,000, mostly on mail pieces, and still had $233,986 in the bank at the end of the period.

Outstanding debts totaled about $88,600.

Today, additional out-of-town donors contributed to the committee, including the California Apartment Association Political Action Committee of Sacramento, with $5,000, and South San Francisco's Genentech, with $1,000.

La Jolla's Dan Shea of Donovan's Steakhouse is listed as a principal officer of the committee on its statement of organization.

I plan on making a few (small) donations myself.
