A press release from the Michelle Steel for Supervisor campaign:
MICHELLE STEEL ANNOUNCES MORE THAN HALF A MILLION DOLLARS CASH ON HAND
In the election for 2nd District Orange County Supervisor, Michelle Steel announced the current cash on hand numbers for her campaign. With 4 days still to go before the June 30th report deadline, Michelle Steel announced having over $530,000 dollars already in her campaign account. The final cash on hand numbers will be released sometime during the month of July per election law and covers all campaign finance from the first of the year.
As well as already receiving many notable endorsements, Steel’s impressive cash on hand number is exciting news for the campaign. The growing list of endorsements includes U.S. Representatives Ed Royce and Dana Rohrabacher, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and former Assemblyman and Orange County Supervisor Jim Silva.
Jon Fleischman, publisher of the widely read Flashreport.org website and a respected political analyst, commented on the strength of Steel’s robust fundraising and grassroots support, “this report will show Michelle is gaining broad support. Early in an election, a candidate’s strength is usually determined by the number of local endorsements they receive and the amount of money in the bank. Michelle is running away with both. With about a year before the election this is quickly becoming a one horse race.”
Michelle Steel currently serves as the Vice Chair of the California State Board of Equalization representing the 3rd District, which includes Orange County.
