The results of Gov. Dannel Malloy’s fundraising trip to California on behalf of the Democratic Party last week won’t be public until next year because he left for California immediately after the most recent reporting period ended.
Both major state parties submitted 12th day preceding election fundraising reports yesterday to the State Elections Enforcement Commission. The reports cover funds raised between July 1 and Oct. 17. The next report is due Jan. 10, 2014.
The two parties also have separate federal fundraising accounts. If any of the funds raised in California go to the Democratic Party’s federal accounts, the party will disclose them to the Federal Elections Commission next month. A spokesman for the party was not available to clarify which account the funds raised in California would go into.
The Democrats raised more than three times as much as Republicans, $136,000 from individuals and and $53,000 from committees.
Republicans raised $43,000 from individuals and $10,000 from committees.
Democrats have $127,000 on hand, while Republicans about $47,000 on hand.
Democratic contributors who stand out include Eli Broad ($8,000), Jonathan Sackler ($10,000) and his wife, Mary Corson, ($10,000).
State Sen. L. Scott Frantz, R-Greenwich, gave $10,000 to the Republican Party, as did former U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon and her husband. Former Congressional candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley gave $5,500.
