WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal records show Republican Doug Ose has lent his campaign about $816,000 in his bid to unseat Democratic incumbent Ami Bera in one of California’s closest congressional races.

Bera maintains a significant edge in cash-on-hand for the campaign’s final weeks, according to Federal Election Commission records filed late Wednesday. Bera’s campaign reported having nearly $815,000 in the bank at the end of September, while Ose had about $271,000.

In the race for the 7th Congressional District seat, money from outside groups also is playing a large role. Various interest groups have spent more than $4 million to try to influence the outcome in the Sacramento-area district.

Bera is seeking a second term, while Ose is trying to return to Congress.
