In what is developing as one of the more interesting and perhaps hotly contested elections associated with Elk Grove, Sacramento City Councilmember and California State Assembly candidate Eric Guerra has announced the amassment of a substantial campaign war chest.  

According to data provided by his campaign, the Democratic California Assembly District 10 candidate has raised over $500,000 and currently has about $400,000 on hand. Guerra faces fellow Democrats Pastor Tecoy Porter and Elk Grove City Councilmember Stephanie Nguyen, who will formally enter the race in the coming days.

At the end of 2021, Guerra reported the receipt of $322,489 while Nguyen reported fundraising activities of $31,988 for her city council account, and Porter received donations totaling $55,646, which was for his Senate campaign, which he dropped in favor of running for the Assembly. 

"As I said when I started this race, I want to represent a community that mirrors my life story. Assembly District 10 includes a large number of under-resourced communities who also want a shot at the middle-class," Guerra said in his press release. "There must be a focus on equity and eliminating barriers to opportunities." 

Among the expenses for Guerra's campaign are 30-second TV spots on Comcast in Elk Grove and Sacramento on CNN. The campaign advertisement can be viewed below. 

Guerra has amassed his campaign funds for over a year, starting with his entry for the California State Senate. However, he dropped out of the District 8 senate race earlier this year after redistricting was completed, and former California Insurance Commissioner and California Assemblymember Dave Jones entered the race. 

Interestingly, Guerra's press release also noted:
"The new Assembly District 10 is neither a City of Sacramento seat, nor an Elk Grove seat. Elk Grove and the City of Sacramento have nearly the same number of voters– and when you look at just the Democratic vote, it is even closer because Elk Grove has a higher percentage of Republicans. The population of the district is almost evenly split between Latinos and members of the AAPI communities."
