Raises the Most Money of Any Candidate
Nearly Twice As Much As Nearest Competitor
Roseville, CA — Former Deputy Attorney General Kevin Kiley, a Republican, was the top fundraiser in the 6th Assembly District during the First Quarter of 2016, according to reports filed with the Secretary of State yesterday.
Kiley reported collecting more than $151,000, two thirds of the contributions coming from local donors, and reported the largest number of individual donations. Now with $252,000 raised Kiley has raised the most money of any candidate. Additionally, Kiley did not pad his report with personal loans.
Here are the cash contribution numbers for the top Republican candidates for the reporting period:
Kevin Kiley - $151,846
Andy Pugno - $50,027 (Excludes $100,000 Personal Contribution)
Bill Halldin - $81,057
Kevin Hanley - $24,111 (Excludes $50,000 Loan)
Cristi Nelson - $26,815
"Kevin Kiley is a first-time candidate in a political climate that favors newcomers, and just as important, Kevin is the only candidate to have been raised in the Sixth District,” said Kiley Campaign Manager William Kolkey. "Combine that with Kevin's lead in fundraising, over 150 local volunteers, and endorsements from respected leaders such as Governor Pete Wilson, and it becomes clear that Kevin is the Republican best positioned to win the Primary this June."
Kiley has quickly established himself as the frontrunner in the election. Not only has Kiley out-raised all other candidates, he has been endorsed by Governor Pete Wilson and established a massive ground campaign that has contacted tens of thousands of voters in the last few weeks.
