Assemblyman Kevin Mullin has surged ahead in fundraising for the 15th congressional district race, while Burlingame Councilmember Emily Beach has maintained a competitive campaign treasury. As for San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa, his fundraising is shrouded in mystery.

According to the campaigns, Mullin raised more than $384,000 from Jan. 1-March 31, including $200,000 in just the month of March; Beach raised more than $164,000 during the same period; the Canepa campaign brusquely declined to respond to an inquiry by me about their fundraising during the period.

Mark, thanks covering candidates for office. No one seems to care. Whoever is elected will vote according to party lines regardless of what they promised. Voters need to get engaged so our elected representatives first priority is to represent constituents.
