Strickland to Report More Than $1 Million in Cash on Hand

The congressional candidate raises $605,000 in the second-quarter reporting period

State Sen. Tony Strickland, R-Simi Valley, a candidate for Congress in California’s open 26th Congressional District, announced Wednesday that he raised $605,000 in the second quarterly reporting period and will report more than $1 million cash on hand, while still finishing first in a June primary by 18 percent over his general election opponent.

“Our campaign continues to build unprecedented momentum. Our current financial standing and wide breadth of support is a testament to our strength entering the home stretch,” Strickland said. “Our Ventura County neighbors deserve an independent voice to fight for good American jobs and protect Naval Base Ventura County. I’m humbled that so many families have invested in our campaign to do just that.”

California’s 26th Congressional District is rated by the respected Rothenberg Political Report as “Lean Republican,” given Strickland’s dominant showing in the primary election and more than 3-to-1 cash on hand advantage.

Strickland has represented every part of the 26th Congressional District during his service in the Assembly and state Senate.

Strickland was elected to the California Senate representing parts of Ventura, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties in 2008. He previously served the area as a member of the Assembly from 1998 to 2004. He is married to his wife of 14 years, Audra. They have two small children, Ruby Ruth and Anthony Paul.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
