The Money Race

10-1 run-offs eight days out

The campaign finance reporting period for mayoral and City Council run-off races covered the period from Oct. 26 to Dec. 6; reports were due in the City Clerk's office by 5pm Dec. 8. The figures listed here are taken directly from candidates' reports to the City Clerk; anomalies, omissions, and apparent reporting errors are as they appear on the reports, and we'll follow issues and questions raised by the reports online at the Newsdesk and in subsequent reporting.

"Raised" includes only contributions; "Loans" includes loans compiled on the Dec. 8 campaign finance report (which may include self-loans from personal funds or from other parties); "On Hand" totals include dollars raised through contributions or loans and held as of Dec. 6. (Totals are rounded to the nearest dollar.)
