With his narrow victory to a second term just months ago, Congressman Dr. Ami Bera (D -Elk Grove) has not let up on fundraising efforts in what has become one of the nations most competitive Congressional Districts.

Today Bera announced that for the first quarter of 2015, his campaign raised $308,000, a record for any of his first quarter efforts. Bera has over $350,000 on hand as he works toward the 2016 elections.

According to his campaign, 87 percent of the individual donors are Californians, with 80 percent of those donating $100 or less.

“I'm honored by the continued support." Bera said. "It is a privilege to represent Sacramento County families and I'll continue to put them ahead of politics and to fight for bipartisan solutions to the challenges they face." 

Bera fought off former Congressman Doug Ose in what was the most expensive Congressional race in the 2014 cycle. In the aftermath of that election, Bera and Ose both criticized the amount of independent money that flowed into the race.

Although no candidates have declared, the 2016 race of the Seventh District seat is expected to be close, and expensive. The Republican National Congressional Committee is once targeting the district as a possible pick-up.   

“Ami Bera has filled his war chest with cash from Nancy Pelosi and her liberal allies, but no amount of money can hide Bera’s votes to raise taxes on hardworking families while giving himself taxpayer funded healthcare for life,” NRCC Spokesman Zach Hunter said.
