Irvine city council member Beth Krom took only three weeks from the launch of her run for Congress in California’s CD-48 against Republican Congressman John Campbell to outraise the incumbant in the first quarter 2009 filings.Â The Hill.com rounds up the fundraising saying Krom beat Campbell $60K to $50K.
Here is Krom’s report.Â And here is Campbell’s.Â Noteworthy to report.Â Most of Campbell’s money came from PACs.Â Almost all of Krom’s money from individuals including folks from Campbell’s backyard in Shady Canyon and Newport Beach.Â
More after the Jump.
Also noteworthy on Campbell’s report; two contributions from a Maureen Campbell of Los Angeles forÂ $4600 each filed in February before Krom jumped into the race.Â One for the Primary and one for the General.Â Campbell’s worried about a Primary?Â And isn’t the legal limit for an individual $2400? Because if Ms. Campbell is filing on behalf of her a spouse who is not named, shouldn’t his name been on the report as well?Â The Krom campaign got back to me and said this double-entry appears to be an error on the part of the Campbell camp.Â But hey, I thought this guy was some sort of beancounter or something.
