Vargas raising cash for state Senate, but running for Congress

Bob did it, so why not his presumed successor, too?

By Dave Maass

The headline for this blog post is a direct copy of one that topped voiceofsandiego.org writer Liam Dillon's piece examining how Rep. Bob Filner continues to attend fundraisers for his Congressional campaign even though he's running for mayor of San Diego. 

One day after Filner announced his candidacy, California State Sen. Juan Vargas filed his intention to run for Filner's seat (such as it is after redistricting) in 2012. And yet, according to a disclosure filed with the California Secretary of State, Vargas is still collecting money for his Senate campaign.

On Friday, June 24, Vargas reported that he received:

$7,800 from the California State Council of Service Employees (aka, the labor union SEIU)

$6,300 from the California Association of Highway Patrolmen

It's probably worth noting, however, that unlike Filner, Vargas has quite a bit of campaign debt—as of his last report, more than half a mil.
