Ricky Gill to run for Congress
Lodi native Ricky Gill addresses his supporters during his congressional campaign announcement at Lodi Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, May 17, 2011.

Republican Congressional candidate Ricky Gill reports raising more than $420,000 through June 30, according to his campaign.

Gill, 25, announced on May 17 that he is seeking the congressional seat currently held by Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton. Due to new congressional boundaries that will be determined in August by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission, Gill and McNerney might not be opponents in the 2012 election.

McNerney may have to decide whether to run in San Joaquin County or in the East Bay, where he lives. McNerney says he will not comment on his re-election plans until after the new maps are finalized.

Gill said in a news release that all the money he’s raised came from individuals only, not from organizations or political action committees.

Candidates have until July 15 to submit their June 30 filings, according to a Federal Election Commission spokeswoman.
