Ming Outraises All Other Fifth District Candidates Combined

ORANGE  COUNTY, CA –  Year-end campaign finance reports released on Friday show  that Robert Ming raised more than both of his opponents combined,  clearly identifying his position as the frontrunner in the race for  Orange County Supervisor for the 5th District.  Ming raised nearly  $100,000 from 238 donors, leading his opponents in every possible  analysis of campaign finance, including amount raised, number of donors,  and most cash on hand.

“I am deeply honored and humbled by the  outpouring of support from throughout the Fifth District,” Ming said. “I  have been thrilled with the number of grassroots volunteers and donors  who are supporting my campaign.” 

According  to the finance reports, Ming raised $98,457 while Lisa Bartlett raised  $53,162 and Frank Ury rased $38,746, counting all monetary and in-kind  contributions.  Ming had 238 donors, far more than the combined number  of donors reported by Bartlett at 98 and Ury at 58. He closed the filing  period with $103,744 cash on hand, more than any other candidate.     

Ming has also dominated the endorsements for 5th  District Supervisor, receiving support from countless respected local  leaders and organizations, including Chairman of the Board of  Supervisors, Shawn Nelson, Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff, the Howard  Jarvis Taxpayers Association PAC, the Orange County Lincoln Club, Atlas  PAC, and far more south county community and business leaders than any  other candidate.
 Robert Ming was born and raised in Orange  County. He and his wife Susie have been married for 21 years and have  four children. Professionally, Ming is Senior Vice President and  Associate General Counsel at Jefferies, an international brokerage firm.  Robert is a two-time Mayor of Laguna Niguel, was the Founding President  of the Association of California Cities, and has served on numerous  non-profit and charitable boards.

Robert  Ming is running for Orange County Supervisor in the 5th District,  currently represented by Supervisor Pat Bates, who is leaving due to  term limits.  Orange County’s 5th District includes the cities of Aliso  Viejo, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna  Woods, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente,  San Juan Capistrano, as well as the community of Shady Canyon in Irvine and the unincorporated communities of Coto de Caza, Ladera Ranch, Las Flores, and Wagon Wheel.
