Incumbent Democrat Jerry McNerney and Republican challengers Brad Goehring and David Harmer are going neck-and-neck over which candidate has raised the most money for the 11th Congressional District race.

Goehring, a grape grower from Clements, has raised $1.5 million, according to figures submitted Thursday to the Federal Election Commission. Harmer, a San Ramon attorney, has raised $1.4 million, and McNerney, who lives in Pleasanton, has garnered $1.3 million.

    dogs4you...dump Pelosi, who by the way would make a great Halloween mask.I am angry with you now... as a dentist supporter economically, I am horrified at the idea of a Pelosi Halloween mask... it will frighten so many ... no body gets candy... and teeth get better... dentists are out of business...please... stop talking about her as a "mask"... it would be tooooo effective, especially if it were a talking mask.

    pre$$ure$on " I'm hoping that the three worn out female senators Feinstein, Boxer and Pelosi are bounced Pre$$... I was mistaken about you obviously... if you want these three out... you have my humble apology.However, you are still one nasty person who constantly puts down people in a very personal way. Maybe I thought you were on the left because most left leaning people I come in contact with behave and talk like you. Also, many of your comments mirror left leaning people. I will read your comments more carefully from a different light now.Again, sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Contentado, are you really under the silly impression that Goehring had a smooth million in his bank account? He most likely took out a loan against his assets. That's putting your own money where your mouth is, which I admire.

    The only plus McNerney had going for him the last time is he was running against Pombo. No Pombo this time, so he will be gone.

    how can you possibly report that goehring is ahead when he loaned himself over a million bucks???? LOLWOW - he must have REALLY tightened his belt when his crop froze. What? No trip to Europe that year..what a joke. Brad won't stand a CHANCE against McNerny - too many skeletons in his closet that McNerny won't hesitate to capitalize on.

    Ummm... Did I miss something? How can Brad Goehring be ahead in fundraising when well over 2/3 of what he has raised came from a personal loan of over one million dollars to himself? I don't begrudge him being rich. After all, that's the American dream. However, if you check your math Harmer is well in the fundraising lead. It's nice to support the home-town boy and all, but your editorial board should come clean about it. You should also avoid obfuscating your facts.

    IMO: you got that right. Seems to me that if you take something without paying for it, your stealing, if you enter without getting an OK your trespassing, medical services for free, legal services for nothing, wrong. What part of illegal don`t these people understand. I was under the impression that the voting pamphlets would be printed in English only. Wrong about that.Pre$$ure, while I agree with you, only boxer can be put out to pasture. Feinstine is not up for reelection and the Republicans have to take control of the house to dump Pelosi, who by the way would make a great Halloween mask.

    I'm hoping that the three worn out female senators Feinstein, Boxer and Pelosi are bounced for good and replaced with some forward thinking independent females that aren't already half dead.

    I'm still undecided between Harmer and Emken.I'm surprised to learn that, even though Goehring's from a prominent and prosperous family, he never finished college. That would give Democrats ammo in a debate - even if Goehring was an intelligent person, they'd constantly point to his lack of education. Unfortunately, the era of Harry Truman has passed, and candidates without degrees just don't appear as qualified as those who have them.

    surfer. where do you get the idea I'm from the left and support McNerney? The only politicians that I supprot at this point in time are Ken Vogel, JoAnne Mounce and Alyson Huber. I'm registered non-partisan and couldn't give a damn about any party and vote solely on which candidate most represents my ideas and thoughts. I know it's hard for you in your little sheepherds to see past the fence in your own little spinning worlds.

    surfglider: I re-read you post. Your "jerry has worked hard" set me off. He has followed the leftist, socialist, pelosi template, carried water, and licked boots to get where he is and it looked to me like you were endorsing his tactics. If I am wrong, I am wrong.

    veritas... I’m curious... are you thinking I support or approve of McNerney? I’m confused as to what you conclude from my comments. I.. like you, want McNerney gone as I think he does not represent local interests. Please clarify

    dear: surfgliderdb McNebbish was given the veteran issue because the demonrats control everything and they known the smallest of trinkets to the vets knowing it will stimulate people like you. McNebbish knows nothing unless Nancy tells him what to do.

    pre$$ure$on ... Imagine that... someone using his own money in a campaign...He must be a real bad person to do that.. I guess if he should do like your good friend McNerney... tap into big labor and many bay area unions after union that will pull his strings later.I understand that the long list of local donnors is scary to you ... a republican that be held accountable to local interests as opposed to McNerney... your Bay area man... good thinking Pre$$

    ChetW... Its funny you consider Jerry someone from our area... in reality, he is a bay area favorite who would have never been elected in this area had redistricting not taken place. I think Jerry has worked hard... but its been to convince people like you that he has San Joaquin residents best interest at heart...

    Dogs, let's be realistic. If we could harness the hot air and wind from all those spinning politicos, we'd have more than the energy we need.

    Thanks Jerry for 2,700 pages of Health Care that nobody ever read, as Pelosi said, lets get it passed and then we will read it. Also thanks for Tax & Trade. When it comes to wind power NcNerney sure talks maga-watts. Concerning Tax and Trade, better read what it`s all about, gas will cost more so less Americans will drive, and electricy will cost more so Americans will use less. Jerry got to go. As far as the guy in the oval office is concerned, One and Done.

    Raising money is certainly important in any race for Congress. What is more important is the person and they way they represent the people in the district. In Jerry McNerney we have a Rep that lives in the district and works very hard for what is important to the people in the District. His leadership and support for our veterans, soldiers and families has be important and real. His bill to improve health care for our wounded soldiers was recently signed into law. Thank you Jerry McNerney.

    pre$$ure$on - Campaign finance is ALREADY legislated badly - what we need in no limits and 24hour electronic reporting. Let voters be informed decide with their votes. LNS does a real service publishing a list of contributors but they could just direct folks to a website..

    I see many of the good old boys and girls on Goehring's contribution list, but why "borrow over one million smackers from yourslef? Nor any candidate using their own money for campaign funds? And let's not forget those contributions of cash or check under $99 that are not considered reportable? Campaign finance reform needs to be legislated badly.
