In other Maxine Waters news, LA Focus reports that Republican Omar Navarro who is running against the incumbent Congresswoman for California’s 43rd seat in the House of Representatives, has raised more than $450,000 in campaign funds in the third quarter of this year– more than doubling Waters’ $193,000.
Navarro’s surge in funding – the report says – represents part of a national backlash against Waters criticisms of the Trump Administration, as much of the donations received to the Navarro campaign came in small increments from places across the country such as Florida and Rhode Island.
This impressive support from out-of-state individual donors is contrasted by that of Republican Party groups who are contributing to California’s hotly contested races– and have invested next to nothing in Navarro who is still considered a long-shot.
“There’s a lot of people across the country that are just unhappy with the rhetoric Maxine Waters is using,” Navarro said in an interview. “They’re becoming angry. They’re not happy she’s trying to impeach the president.”
