With well under four months now until the April 3 primaries, D.C. Council campaigns are shifting into full fundraising gear. The finance reports filed yesterday show that incumbents are leading as expected, but not all incumbents are doing equally as well.
The biggest haul for the period belongs to Vincent Orange (D-At Large), who took in $105,000, thanks in no small part to bundled contributions from the likes of gas station mogul Joe Mamo and taxi titan Jerry Schaeffer. But in terms of cash on hand, he lags behind a pair of ward members, Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), with about $130,000 left to spend, and Muriel Bowser (D-Ward 4), with about $174,000.
A glossary for the tweets below: “in” refers to contributions received in the current reporting period, since Oct. 10; “out” refers to expenditures made in the period; and “COH” refers to the campaign’s current cash on hand.
