The fact that he trails Correa badly in fund-raising is perhaps the best evidence of Lopez's undesirability as a candidate: in a county dominated by cash-rich Republicans, Lopez doesn't even have a tenth of Correa's campaign cash. A 29-year veteran of the Anaheim Police Department, Lopez couldn't squeeze one dollar out of that city's Police Officers PAC, which gave Correa a measly but symbolic $100. Lopez's former buddies also refused to endorse him in the 1998 supervisor's race. Lopez will almost certainly lose on Nov. 7. It's too bad he couldn't lose to a better guy.
