Dollar Dollar Bill Is Back for 2019 and 2020

We just had an election--are there really interesting campaign finance trends for the next cycle yet?

Yes!

2019 Special Elections

There are two special elections set for March 2019, each with possible runoffs. Candidates in Senate District 1 (2019) and Senate District 33 (2019) are already raising funds in earnest for their races.

Be sure to stop by the pages for the 2020 races for those districts go get a full picture of the money being raised in those districts, as candidates can transfer funds from their 2020 accounts to their 2019 accounts. Find them here: Senate District 1 (2020) and Senate District 33 (2020)

Emerging Narratives

Campaign finance data reveal emerging 2020 campaign narratives.

In SD15, Nora Campos will try again to win a Senate seat. But at the end of 2018, Santa Clara County Supervisor David Cortese very nearly erased Campos's three-year head start on fundraising.

The strength of Republican and Democratic fundraising in SD05 indicate the contest could end up being a swing race.

In SD37, we see that Dave Min, who narrowly lost a spot on the General Election ballot to eventual Congressmember Katie Porter, announced he plans to try unseating Republican incumbent John Moorlach. Min currently trails Moorlach in contributions by a factor of 10, though it is fairly early in the cycle.

Incumbent Warchests

There are currently six incumbents who have raised over $1,000,000 for their 2020 races:

SD03 (Dodd)
SD07 (Glazer)
SD09 (Skinner)
SD11 (Wiener)
SD27 (Stern)
SD39 (Atkins)
