AD-74: Mansoor Raised More, Daigle Has More Cash on Hand

Posted by Chris Nguyen on February 1, 2012

In the race for the new 74th District, Assemblyman Allan Mansoor raised more, but Newport Beach Councilwoman Leslie Daigle has more cash on hand, according to the latest campaign finance filings.

Mansoor raised $207,247 in 2011 between his two Assembly campaign accounts (2010 and 2012).  He has not yet transferred money into his 2012 account, which I assume he will do at some point in 2012.  Of that nearly quarter-million dollars, Mansoor has $60,875 cash on hand.  The bulk of the money was spent on loan/debt repayment and payments to The Bovee Company, AimPoint, and Visteva.

Daigle transferred $23,250 from her Council account and raised an additional $111,818 in 2011 for her Assembly campaign.  She spent $15,365, most of which went to polling company Wilson Perkins Allen (formerly Wilson Research Strategies).  Interestingly, she spent $230 on Kenny the Printer, who many will recall is the favored printer of Democrat Larry Agran’s machine in Irvine.

Raised Transferred Spent Cash on Hand Unpaid Bills Candidate Loans
Mansoor $207,247 $0 $117,312 $60,875 $4,060 $25,000
Daigle $111,818 $23,250 $15,365 $119,703 $0 $0

Huntington Beach Councilman Joe Carchio entered the race just two weeks ago, so no campaign finance filings will be available from him until March.

An independent by the name of Paul Vann has not yet reached the $1,000 threshold required to file a campaign committee with the Secretary of State.

No Democrats have pulled papers to run in this race.

The new AD-74 consists of Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Newport Beach, most of Irvine, and half of Huntington Beach.  AD-74 includes about 67,000 voters from Huntington Beach, where voters elected Carchio to two terms on the City Council; the 63,000 voters from Newport Beach, where voters elected Daigle to two terms on the City Council; and the 58,000 voters of Mansoor’s hometown of Costa Mesa, where voters have elected Mansoor to office three times (two terms on the City Council and one term in the Assembly).

  1. The OC GOP blew it. They should have gone with Carlson. Mansoor is a lifetime government worker with a two year degree and he has accomplished nothing. Carlson is a lawyer and is far more prepared to be effective in Sacramento. Daigle is going to beat Mansoor. http://wp.me/p269j9-aO

    Daigle outraised Mansoor $140,000 to $125,000 for the period filed (July to December). Apples to apples.
