Hillsboro Beach, FL 33062
With neither State nor Federal
matching funds, Juan Xuna has spent $30,000 from his family bank
account to run the campaign. This does not count the estimated $70,000
in "lost earnings". The candidate resigned in January of
2002 to his previous employ as Vice President of International Sales (for
a phone-parts manufacturer) to dedicate full-time to the campaign.

It's your call! I did all I could!

Under Federal law it is illegal to use campaign funds for personal
expenses not related to the campaign. I would say that this law
is unfair, and it has been passed with the purpose of avoiding rampant fraud,
which I am sure was commonplace sometime ago (in the interesting -if not always
smooth- political past of our country). Well, as things are today, while campaigning for public service, the
political candidate must be able to come up with money from other sources to
support him and his family. That is easier said than done! Especially when you are a hopeful challenger, who tries to dethrone an incumbent
veteran Congressman. You will have to dedicate 100% of your time to the campaign (18
hours a day, 7 days a week). That said, it means that unless you are
a wealthy individual, or unless your have a healthy consultancy or professional practice, you
can not run for Congress.
