Mrs. Whitman has $19 million banked 10 months before the June 2010 Republican primary. That’s after spending $6 million in the past six months.
Most of the money came from Mrs. Whitman herself. About $7 million came from other contributors.
Mrs. Whitman’s Republican rival and fellow technology billionaire, state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, said in campaign reports filed Friday that he ended the June 30 filing period with $3.7 million in cash after raising $4.5 million.
Mr. Poizner has given $4.2 million to his campaign.
Sailor commits suicide in brig
SAN DIEGO — The Navy says a sailor charged with the murder of a seaman has committed suicide in the brig at Camp Pendleton.
A Navy news release said Petty Officer Jonathan Campos, of Lancaster, was found unresponsive in his cell Friday afternoon. He was rushed to the base hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Officials said the apparent cause of death was asphyxiation.
The release said Petty Officer Campos had last been checked early Friday afternoon.
Petty Officer Campos was charged with murder and other offenses in the June 30 fatal shooting of August Provost, a 29-year-old seaman from Houston who was shot several times in the sentry station at Camp Pendleton.
Officials said the two enlisted men were assigned to Assault Craft Unit 5.
