Constitutional Rights Attorney Maintains Commanding Fundraising Lead in Race for State Assembly

ENCINO, CA -- Underscoring his continued momentum in the race for State Assembly District 45, today Constitutional Rights Attorney Jesse Gabriel's campaign announced that it had surpassed a whopping $450,000 raised for the upcoming special election contest. Gabriel's financial dominance has provided him with a significant advantage heading into the final weeks of the special election contest as he has raised more than four times as much as his nearest competitor, who has less than $100,000 cash on hand.

Today's news comes a day after Gabriel rolled out a new digital video ad, "Twice."
