GLORIA OUTPACES BRY IN FUNDRAISING, CASH ON-HAND 39 DAYS FROM MAYORAL ELECTION
Latest Fundraising Reports: Gloria’s Strong Fundraising Cements Frontrunner Status, Bry Campaign Sinking Financially
SAN DIEGO, CA – With just 39 days until the election of San Diego’s next Mayor, California State Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), candidate for San Diego Mayor, is significantly outpacing his opponent in funds raised and cash on-hand, according to the latest fundraising reports, while his opponent’s campaign appears to be sinking financially. In the last reporting period, Gloria raised a whopping $456,425 with $671,470 cash onhand. Bry raised $358,789 with $222,293 in cash on-hand. Importantly, after all outstanding debts are paid, Gloria holds onto $552,113 in available funds while Bry has only $97,301. This signals Bry’s rapidly sinking campaign and being essentially broke by political campaign standards just 39 days from Election Day. “It’s clear that our campaign is in a strong position and will have the resources necessary to win this November,” said Assemblymember Todd Gloria. “We are ready to take on my opponent’s divisiveness, falsehoods, and her status quo vision for our city. I am grateful for all of the San Diegans who have united around our campaign. We will continue to work harder than ever to earn every vote in every community.” Notably, Bry’s fundraising report shows that she chose to repay herself $100,000 in funds she personally loaned her campaign – a peculiar move so close to the November election. The latest fundraising reports also show that, over the entire campaign, Gloria has outraised Bry. Gloria has raised $1,919,430 while Bry raised $1,787,139 after excluding the $110,000 she has given herself. Last month, Gloria’s campaign released polling data showing Gloria leading Bry by 15 points. To date, Bry’s campaign has released none of her internal polling demonstrating her ability to win. Todd Gloria, the son of a maid and a gardener, is a former San Diego City Councilmember, City Council President, and Interim Mayor. He serves as the California State Assemblymember for the 78th District and is the Majority Whip of the State Assembly. If elected San Diego’s Mayor, Todd will be the first person-of-color and the first LGBT person elected Mayor in city history.
