Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez held a 17-to-1 cash-on-hand advantage over fellow Democrat Betty Yee as of mid-March in the race for state controller, according to the latest campaign filings.

Yee, a member of the state Board of Equalization, and Pérez are running to succeed Controller John Chiang, who is running for state treasurer.

Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, the top Republican in the contest, only declared her candidacy earlier this month and did not file a report by Monday's deadline.

The chart below compares Pérez and Yee's fundraising totals for Jan. 1 through March 17:
