Ryan Carter The California Republican Party is headquartered in Burbank, squarely in the districts of Assemblyman Dario Frommer and state Sen. Jack Scott, both incumbent Democrats who represent the city. Frommer and Scott are in the opposition's backyard, in a sense. But the reality is that the GOP is barely on the map when it comes to challenging the two incumbents: In this year's races, only Frommer will face a Republican opponent -- and a write-in candidate, at that.

Ryan Carter This story is the first in a series on funds raised by local politicians and political candidates. BURBANK -- Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Burbank) does not like to talk much about financial contributions to his campaign. But even though he is mum on the numbers, he carries a big wallet.
