Opponent bashes Rivera's 'obscene' money haul

From a press release:

Paul Crespo's opponent in Congressional District 25 has just announced he “raised more than $700,000 dollars” for his campaign in one month, proudly adding: “This is one of the highest fundraising totals for a congressional campaign in the entire country.”
"I wouldn't be so proud of that fact." said Paul Crespo, Republican candidate for Congress, "since it seems my opponent is more interested in his campaign budget, than the budget woes of the average citizen."
"He should understand this race isn't about dollars. It is about people," emphasized Crespo.
"This represents everything that is wrong with politics today. It is exactly why I am running and what I'm fighting against, Crespo added. "That is an obscene amount in today's economy. Where did all that money come from?"
