Los Wolk who represents Yolo and Solano Counties amassed $683,734 in contributions this period compared to Greg Aghazarian’s $213,838. Overall Aghazarian has still outraised the heavy favorite Wolk by raising $1.36 million to Wolk’s $888,736. However, Wolk now ends the period with $205,000 cash on hand to Aghazarian’s $174,000.
A huge amount of Aghazarian’s expenditures for this period was a $480,000 TV and Cabale ad buy.
Aghazarian’s biggest campaign donors remain the Republican party, however, as you can see from the complete donor list, at least 530 individuals and groups have donated $1000 or more to the Assemblyman’s campaign.
Lois Wolk’s, like her opponent, biggest campaign donors are from the Democratic party. She has had around 340 individuals and groups donate $1000 or more to her campaign.
By contrast this race is tame. We will see if the two parties continue to pump money into this race. It is our guess that internal polls probably show Wolk with a sizable lead and as a result the spending in this race may decline. We will have to monitor to see what is happening.
