Bartlett outraises all Republican opponents in first reporting period as CA-49 Congressional candidate

County Supervisor, businesswoman, and conservative candidate for California’s 49th Congressional District Lisa Bartlett raised $374,119 during her first reporting period as a congressional candidate. The reporting period covers donations from January 1, 2022, through March 31, 2022.

Bartlett’s impressive haul of $374,119 was $101,000 more than her nearest Republican opponent, Christopher Rodriguez, who raised $273,463. Perennial candidate and former Democrat Brian Maryott came in a distant third, raising only $207,290 with over $1,120,600 in debt after running for years.

“The path to turning our County around and Republicans winning back congress likely goes through California’s 49th congressional district,” said Bartlett.

“I am grateful for the growing support, which demonstrates voters are looking for a viable alternative to Brian Maryott, who has already run and lost in the district multiple times and was forced to change his ballot title after he misled voters misrepresenting his qualifications,” Bartlett concluded.

Bartlett’s strong fundraising performance adds to the growing momentum around her campaign, which includes endorsements from Sheriffs, Firefighters, Crime Survivors PAC, the Orange County Congress of Republicans, Larry Elder, New Majority Emeritus Steve Craig, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education Bill Evers, Hispanic 100 Chairman Mario Rodriguez, former San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox, former Orange County Sheriff Brad Gates, Mayor of San Juan Capistrano John Taylor, Mayor of Dana Point Joe Muller, and many other respected community leaders.
