Rep. Dr. Raul Ruiz less than half way through his third term in the U.S. House of Representatives, continues to receive substantial campaign contributions. Through the end of June, Ruiz had $1.6 million in cash available. At this point two years ago, Ruiz had $690,000 available for his second re-election campaign. He went on to raise a total of $3.4 million for his race.
No official challengers have emerged to run against Ruiz and his full campaign chest.
Since January, Ruiz’s campaign has raised nearly $1 million in contributions without a specific opponent named. More than half the funds have been from contributions greater than $2,000.
