Democratic congressional nominee Bill McCullough has failed to file his personal financial disclosures report as required under federal law in his campaign attempting to unseat U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis in Florida’s 6th Congressional District.

McCullough, who won the Aug. 30 Democratic primary, has twice filed for extensions on the requirement, but both extensions have expired. He told FloridaPolitics.com this week that it should be filed soon.

DeSantis, a two-term Republican incumbent who ran for the U.S. Senate this year before dropping out this summer and instead won a Republican primary to defend his seat, filed a disclosure showing he has modest stock assets, some money in the bank, and student loans and a home mortgage that put him in debt overall.

DeSantis reported less than $15,000 worth of stock in each of Scottrade, SiriusXM Holdings and United States Steel Corp., and somewhere between $50,000 and $100,000 in the bank. He did not list his house as an asset. His liabilities include two student loans that total between $25,000 and $65,000 and a home mortgage for between $250,000 and $500,000.

He listed no outside income. He draws $174,000 a year as a member of Congress.
