According to Roman Porter, spokesman for the Fair Political Practices Commission, a candidate can transfer funds from one committee to another if he were, for example, running for Rosemead City Council and later decided to run for the Assembly. But there are a couple of rules the candidate would have to follow.
1. The candidate would have apply for the proper paperwork.
2. The candidate would not be allowed to transfer contributions that exceed the state’s limit of $3,600 contribution per one individual or business. That would erase some of these contributions.
Also, $100,000 is a start to fundraising for the Assembly, but if Tran were actually considering it, which he hasn’t said and only commentors are speculating, he has about another $500,000 to collect.
