Campaign finance reports were due today from candidates running, or at least on the ballot, for the unexpired term of former U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Corpus Christi). These reports cover contributions received and expenditures made during the period ending June 10 and beginning May 2 for runoff participants, April 1 for everyone else who filed an April quarterly report, or the date their campaign committee was established.

As of 10 p.m., we were able to locate reports from four of the nine candidates on the ballot:

  • Bech Bruun (R) – raised $111K, spent $199K and has less than $2K on hand
  • Michael Cloud (R) – raised $95K, spent $146K and has $26K on hand
  • Judith Cutright (I) – raised $1K, spent $2K, has less than $1K on hand; and
  • Mike Westergren (D) – raised $9K, spent $8K, has $4K on hand

No pre-runoff report was available from Marty Perez (R), but a 24-hour report shows he gave his campaign $24K about a week ago. We did not find reports from Roy Barrera (D), Eric Holguin (D), Chris Suprun (I) or Daniel Tinus (L).

Subscribers can read the rest of this report.
