Fundraising totals released for 2018 CA-45 Congressional race

"Campaign disclosures show that Walters, R-Laguna Beach, received $222,000 in third quarter contributions directly into her campaign account and another $210,000 transferred to the account from joint-fundraising events. That left her with $1.4 million cash on hand, including money remaining from last year’s race.

Three Democrats have raised more than $400,000 since entering the race: Brian Forde, a technology advisor in the Obama White House, has $359,000 remaining, UC Irvine law professor Katie Porter has $357,000 left and UCI law professor David Min has $319,000. None have loaned their campaigns money.

Businessman Ron Varasteh has $254,000, thanks largely to a $250,000 loan. Former U.S. Senate aide Kia Hamadanchy has raised $309,000 and has $161,000 left.

None of the remaining three candidates has more than $5,000 in their account."
