Republican challenger Ricky Gill has $1.1 million left in his coffers to run his campaign, about $108,000 more than Democratic incumbent Jerry McNerney in the 9th Congressional District race. The district includes the Lodi-Galt area.

Overall, Gill, a south Lodi resident, has raised $2.3 million during the campaign, while McNerney, who has served almost six years in Congress, raised just under $2 million, according to campaign disclosure statements as of Sept. 30.

Gill prides himself for a lot of his contributions being from individual residents in the district. He accused McNerney for relying on outside residents and political action committees for the bulk of his contributions.

McNerney, who recently moved from Pleasanton to Stockton, received $690,000 from PACs, while Gill collected more than $286,000. As for individual contributions, McNerney received $1.3 million and Gill got more than $2.0 million, according to Federal Election Commission figures.
