Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn has raised more than $1 million in her race for Congress, while businessman Craig Huey is relying on his personal bankroll for most of his campaign funds, according to reports filed this week with the Federal Election Commission.
Hahn, a Democrat running to succeed former Rep. Jane Harman (D-Venice) in a special July 12 election, had collected $1,097,461 by the June 22 end of the latest campaign finance reporting period. She reported having $323,348 left to spend and had taken no loans. After the reporting period closed, she received an additional $5,000 from DRIVE, a political action committee in Washington, D.C.
Huey, a Republican backed by "tea party" activists, lent his campaign $195,000 during the latest reporting period, from April 28 through June 22. That brought his total loans to his campaign to $695,000. His earlier ones, amounting to $500,000, gave him the biggest war chest in the 16-candidate special primary in May and helped him get into the runoff.
In addition to his own loans, Huey raised $144,120 by the end of the reporting period, bringing his overall campaign fund to $839,514. He had $56,526 left in his treasury.
