They are all serious... but not all are Viable.

So many good people are running to defeat "The Liar" Jeff Denham.
But we each have to make a decision about which one has a real chance of getting the job done. Defeating our own local Donald Trump of CD 10 will not be easy or inexpensive. In fact it will take a lot more than the desire and good heart that is apparent in each of our current Democratic candidates. Yeah... I'm talking about money. The candidate that raises the most dollars does NOT automatically win or we would have Governor Meg Whitman today. But Jerry did have to raise serious amounts of money to produce a winning campaign. The same principle is true today in CD 10.
The hard facts are below and we should take them into consideration when we choose which of these fine folks we want to support and which we want to encourage to run for another office.
The figures are from the Federal Elections Commission's
website Oct. 18, 2017.

Name.....................................................................Cash on hand

"The Liar" Jeff Denham (R)....................................$1,583,676.52

Josh Harder (D).........................................................$511,690.57

TJ Cox (D).................................................................$137,055.83

Sue Zwahlen (D).........................................................$52,426.60

Virginia Madueno (D)..................................................$45,425.41

Mike Barkley (D)...............................................................$427.99

Dorothy Nygard (D).......................................................$7,412.39

Lisa Battista (D).............................................................$5,187.73

Seth Michael Vaughn (D)..................................................$530.60

Terra Eva Snover (I)..........................................................$337.81

Mateo Bedolla (D)................................................................$73.70
