GROW ELECT UPDATE
GROW Elect has already helped elect 60 Latino Republicans to office in the Golden State. Our goal for November is to support the successful election of over 100 Latino GOP candidates. In addition, we’re committed to increasing the number of Latino Republicans in the Legislature. GROW is expanding its political team to meet the increased needs of providing training, advice and financial support for so many candidates.
Former Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia has more than twice as much cash on hand as her run-off opponent and only carried debts of $18K after the primary. In contrast, her opponent has a massive debt of $248,000. Garcia has the decided edge in the November.
Local media reported that Downey Councilman Mario A. Guerra out raised his run-off opponent by over $1,500 after a double digit victory margin in June. Mario’s opponent is relying heavily on rolling over money from previous campaigns, whereas Mario is aggressively raising funds locally. He continues to run an assertive campaign that’s demonstrating strong crossover appeal.
Latino Republican Assemblyman Eric Linder also showed his fundraising chops by having over $206,000 in the bank for a competitive re-election campaign.
