FAIRFIELD — District Attorney Donald A. du Bain put another $30,000 into his campaign Friday, bringing the total he has given his election bid to $320,000.

Du Bain has put $120,000 into his campaign in the past week. His campaign coffers also include more than $80,000 left from a personal loan he made to his 2010 campaign that had been sitting in the bank.

Prosecutor Krishna A. Abrams, du Bain’s opponent, reported Friday that her campaign had received $2,215 in contributions from a Vacaville real estate firm and a deputy sheriff.

During the 2014 primary campaign period up until last week, Abrams’ reportable contributions (more than $99) were more than $44,000 while du Bain’s contributions, aside from his own, were nearly $30,000.

Du Bain last week reported that $200,000 in contributions he previously donated to his campaign were instead interest-free personal loans to his campaign.

    We are seeing as much money going into du Bain's campaign on a daily basis as we are seeing glossy say nothing mailers about three useless initiatives in our mail box every day. My my Mr. Du Bain you obviously have as much common sense as your conviction rate would indicate.

    And he is going door to door. Showed up at mine this afternoon. Wanted to give me a flyer. Told him I received enough in the mail.

    Sullivan, this is old. Get a life. It costs money to run a campaign.

    Attacking Sullivan for reporting campaign contributions is foolish. Sullivan is doing us a service. There should be transparency and voters have every right to know where money is coming from. The fact that it doesn't look good for du Bain is his problem. Du Bain could have engaged in a series of debates which would have saved money and informed the public to the real issues in this campaign. Persuade the voter, not purchase the voter. But I think we know why du Bain didn't want more debates. Undoubtedly he would have been weighed, measured, and found wanting.

    It has become public that DA duBain recently let his campaign manager go due to major polling numbers showing that the duBain money being spent on campaign mailers are not producing the desired results. He has put one of his Chief Deputies in a new role for the last few days. Sounds like "bunker mentality" has taken over.

    Special interest groups from out of the area plus defense attorney groups interested in keeping the status quote incompetence are trying to buy this election for profit.

    Daniel, your comments make no sense given the broad degree of support from such a diverse group. I refer you to Ms. Abrams' website at Abrams4DA.com.

    Du Bain should just mail voters money to vote for him. This flaunting of wealth for personal gain is unseemly. Voters are being inundated with du Bain's campaign literature. How many trees could have been saved? Du Bain should have used that money on something more constructive, like a donation to the Family Justice Center he keeps touting! Instead he's used his personal wealth in a destructive manner to go negative against Abrams. This last minute influx of cash reeks of desperation. Despite being outspent 10:1 Abrams has a real shot at winning this election. Truth is that she's the best prosecutor in this race and has the facts on her side.
