UPDATE: Saucedo Mercer Ready To Re-Ramp Up Campaign, Fundraising

Although her internet presence and her new campaign finance filing showed a nearly-dormant first three months of 2014, Gabriela Saucedo Mercer's campaign is ready to resume work within the next week.

The Republican, who is seeking a re-match against longtime incumbent Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD3), has been "reformulating (our) efforts" and is ready to start "reaching out to new donors and existing donors", according to Loren Charles, her Communications Director.

Saucedo Mercer's FEC filing shows the campaign in the red, and 80% behind her fundraising at this point in 2012.  Arizona's Politics noted the lack of activity in an article over the weekend, and had asked for further information.

Charles indicated that Saucedo Mercer had had an "educational commitment" that was finishing up yesterday, and "took up a bunch of her energy."

Grijalva's 1st quarter report is not yet available, but he had $109,000 in the bank on January 1.
