California Democrats have raised nearly two times as much money as the Republicans they are trying to oust

For the first time this election cycle, three Republicans reported having less money in the bank than some of their challengers, a sign of trouble since incumbents have the advantage of carrying over money they’ve socked away in previous elections. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who hasn’t built up much of a war chest, ended 2017 with a bank account balance that was $120,000 less than his closest competitor, Harley Rouda.
