60. She is in a district

gerrymandered in 2012. Our party will need a strong candidate with funding to defeat her. imo

Debbie Lesko accused of moving $50K from campaign to a PAC that backs ... Lesko

https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/elections/2018/02/21/debbie-lesko-accused-moving-50-k-campaign-pac-backs-lesko/361429002/

Congressional candidate Debbie Lesko last month steered $50,000 from her state Senate campaign to a federal political-action committee that has supported her in the West Valley race, a move one of Lesko’s opponents claimed is illegal in complaints filed this week.

The $50,000 transaction laid out in campaign-finance records underpins complaints to the Federal Election Commission and Arizona attorney general made by Phil Lovas, who is also seeking the Republican nomination for the vacant 8th District seat.

Steve Montenegro, who is also vying for the GOP nomination, also condemned the maneuver.

Lovas said the movement and use of the funds reflect coordination that violates campaign-finance rules.

"This is an illegal money-laundering scheme," he said. "They're clearly in violation of the law. They knew 70 percent of the vote would be in by the time this comes out. ... I think it's clear that there's coordination."
