  •  I'd say it's pretty overwellming (2+ / 0-)

    He outspent his nearest opponent (Denise Saenz Blanchard) $198,000 to $32,000.  That's pretty overwhelming in my opinion.  

    Yes, he's raised most of this from his own wallet, but money is money.  If independent groups start opposing him, or if his runoff opponent can harness anti-Vela donors they may be able to be competitive with him in fundraising, but for now he looks like he'll have the edge.  A Vela opponent doesn't need to match him in spending, but I don't seem them winning while being altogether outspent by a factor of 7 to 1.
