FAIRFIELD — District Attorney Donald A. du Bain’s contribution Wednesday of $75,000 to his campaign raises to $225,000 the amount he has given to his campaign in recent weeks.
Du Bain’s campaign coffers also include more than $80,000 left from a personal loan he made to his 2010 campaign that has been sitting in the bank. It brings his own spending for his campaign to more than $300,000. He previously made $75,000, $30,000 and $20,000 contributions to his campaign.
Prosecutor Krishna A. Abrams, Du Bain’s opponent, loaned her campaign $5,000 earlier this week. Abrams last week received a pair of $5,000 donations from the Fairfield Police Officers Association and the Solano County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association. She also recently received a $1,000 contribution from the Solano County Sheriff’s Custody Association and another $1,000 from a Roseville law firm.
Du Bain also recently received a $4,000 contribution from Theodore Janus of San Francisco.
The latest endorsements of the district attorney candidates include du Bain receiving the backing of the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce, chamber officials announced. Abrams on Wednesday received the endorsement of the Solano County Farm Bureau, according Ryan Mahoney, farm bureau president.
