Why is the Humboldt County Democrat Central Committee the biggest donor, with $170,000, for a candidate in Orange County?

"Fundraising totals are now posted. Newman the Democrat raised more than the Republican. This is what caught my eye. His largest contribution was $170,000 from the Humboldt County Democractic Central Committee. FOR A SEAT IN FULLERTON, CA!" "Winning this seat is a big deal. Losing it in the recall was a black eye. It might make the difference in the Democrats maintaining their super-majority, so I understand it if this is strategic. My concern is it is almost money-laudering, if they are trying to hide the true source of funds, so it doesn't appear where it came from. However, Parties have to report that as well."
