In a letter sent today, Dean Florez, the Senate Majority Leader and candidate for Lieutenant Governor, reported having raised more than three times as much as the next candidate, in addition to gaining some important endorsements statewide.
Florez, a Democrat from California’s Central Valley known for taking on irresponsible industry and lax government oversight, literally saving millions in taxpayer dollars, has already raised approximately $1.5 million in campaign contributions, with nearly $1 million dollars of cash still on hand.
Another candidate, Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn just reported she has raised some $420,691 for the race and has less than $341,000 cash on hand for the upcoming June primary.
Florez recently added to his growing list of supporters the Fresno-Madera-Tulare-Kings Building & Construction Trades Council, Kern-Inyo-Mono Building & Construction Trades Council and key endorsements from San Francisco Supervisor David Campos and other elected officials throughout the state.
In addition, Florez just appeared on Nightline for his work to end the cruel dairy industry practice of taildocking. He was honored as the Humane Society of the United States’ legislator of the year for his legislative efforts to end animal cruelty and his ardent support of Proposition 2, which passed by the largest margin of votes of any proposition in California history.
