RELEASE: Dave Min (SD-37) Outraises John Moorlach 2:1, Has More Cash On Hand

Moorlach Takes Money From Tobacco, Big Pharma and Oil Corporations

Irvine, Calif. ‚ÄĒ TODAY,¬†following the release of the midyear¬†fundraising reports,¬†Dave Min, University of California Irvine law professor and candidate for California’s 37th State Senate District, announced that he had raised twice as much as his opponent incumbent State Senator John Moorlach. Min accomplished this feat without taking a single dime from tobacco, pharmaceutical or fossil fuel companies, even as Moorlach accepted tens of thousands of dollars from these industries.

Professor Min, who enjoys strong support from local community leaders, educators and elected officials, reported $325,393.00 raised from over 850 individual donors and $245,091.74 cash on hand. Most impressive is the fact that 60% of Min’s contributions were from individuals who live in the 37th Senate district.

This stands in stark contrast to the $163,803.48 that Moorlach raised, with 75% of this coming from corporations and PACs and only 19% coming from individuals who live in the State Senate District he claims to represent. Moorlach reported $233,924.94 cash on hand.

‚ÄúI‚Äôm so proud of the people-powered movement we‚Äôre building on the ground here in SD37,‚Ä̬†said Min.¬†‚ÄúSenator Moorlach is a career politician whose extremist views‚ÄĒon Donald Trump, immigration, the environment, women‚Äôs rights, and gun control ‚ÄĒare completely out of touch with the values of hardworking Orange¬†County families. John Moorlach is bought and paid for by the corporate special interests who fund his campaigns. I will always put the interests of district residents over corporations.”¬†

Since announcing his candidacy in January 2019, Min has showed incredible momentum, making over 200 campaign-related appearances and holding more than 50 community events across the 37th District.

The Min campaign has endorsements from the California Federation of Teachers, the API Legislative Caucus, nine members of Congress (including prominent California leaders Ted Lieu, Alan Lowenthal, Gil Cisneros, and Judy Chu), State Controller Betty Yee, nine members of the State Legislature (including Senator Richard Pan, and Assemblymembers Sharon Quirk-Silva, David Chiu, Rob Bonta, and Ash Kalra) and hundreds of local elected officials and community leaders. To see a full list of endorsements click here.
