Campaign Finance Reports are due tomorrow (Monday) for federal, state and local (where required) officeholders and candidates. Federal officeholders and candidates will file July quarterly reports, which disclose contributions received and expenditures made between April 1 and June 30. State and local (where required) officeholders and candidates will file July semiannual reports, which disclose contributions received and expenditures made between January 1 and June 30.
We generally see the federal cash on hand, contribution, expenditure and loan balance totals in real time during the day. We expect to have our Federal Crib Sheet fully updated as well as a brief analysis of fundraising results by Tuesday. State and local forms typically are not made available until the day after they are filed, so expect our state Crib Sheets (Statewide, House, Senate, Special Election) to be updated by Wednesday.

Weslaco: A total of 503 people voted early for Tuesday’s special election to fill an unexpired council term.

Tafolla was elected to a fourth term in November, defeating Garcia, 56%-44%. Farias unsuccessfully ran for mayor in 2013.
