McClintock is helping who?

Reader Input

The rebuttal letter from Jon Huey, campaign manager, (Tom) McClintock for Congress, (Reader Input, Oct. 11), states that 90 percent of contributions come from “individual donors.” I have several questions: How many of those “individual donors” are residents of California’s 4th congressional district, the district Mr. McClintock purports to serve? How many of those “individual donors” became such as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission case? And how does Mr. Huey define “small donors”? While I agree that Mr. McClintock has been more visible than Mr. (John) Doolittle before him, I would be much more impressed if he brought federal money into our district, if he were more supportive of the many un- and under-employed workers in CD 4, if small businesses were on his radar, if affordable healthcare was one of his priorities.
