RIVERSIDE - The Jose Medina for Assembly campaign recently announced that it continues to lead in fundraising, raising $112,000 thus far, which is more than double the amount any candidate has raised in the race for the 61st Assembly District. The campaign also reported more than $72,000 cash on hand - while his main opponent, Republican Bill Batey, reports only $3,755. 

"Contributions from residents of the 61st Assembly District are at the core of my campaign to attract and retain good jobs in Riverside County," said Jose Medina, a Riverside Democrat. "I am also proud to have leaders in business, labor, and public safety among my donors."

A former Riverside Community College District Trustee, Medina outraised GOP contender Bill Batey by more than 2-to-1 in the latest reporting period. Medina raised $41,214 while Batey reported only raising $17,300.

"These resources will help me communicate with voters throughout the 61st Assembly District in time for the June Primary," said Medina. "In the coming months, our continued fundraising efforts and aggressive ground campaign will allow me to share my vision to protect education and promote job creation with the families of Riverside County."

A Riverside Unified School District teacher, Jose Medina is the Democratic candidate in the race for the 61st Assembly District. He is backed by a bipartisan base of elected leaders, and leaders in labor, business, and public safety. The 61st Assembly District includes Riverside, Highgrove, Perris, Mead Valley, Moreno Valley, and March Air Reserve Base. The California Legislative Latino Caucus and the California Democratic Party have identified Medina's race as a top priority in 2012.
