Chris Kelly gives campaign another $2.45 million

June 4, 2010 | 10:59 am

Former Facebook attorney Chris Kelly, a Democratic candidate for attorney general, has reported giving another $2.45 million from his personal fortune to his campaign. The donation brings his total personal contributions to roughly $12.5 million in what has devolved into a slugfest between Kelly and San Francisco Dist. Atty. Kamala Harris.

Harris and Kelly have taken swipes at each other in TV ads in recent days and a barrage of press releases.

Four other Democrats are in the race, including former Los Angeles City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo, and Assemblymen Ted Lieu (D-Torrance), Pedro Nava (D-Santa Barbara) and Alberto Torrico (D-Newark).
