• Council incumbents Yvette M. Alexander (D-Ward 7) and Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) are hurting for cash with less than $4,000 and less than $5,000 cash on hand respectively. Barry has no significant opposition in November, but Alexander is facing Republican Ron Moten.

David Grosso, independent at-large hopeful, had a strong fundraising period, adding more than $20,000 to his coffers and putting his cash on hand at about $53,000. That’s still less than half as much as his main rival, incumbent Michael A. Brown (I-At Large), but enough to start making a citywide splash. Republican Mary Brooks Beatty, also vying for the non-majority seat, has a little more than $18,000.

Jack Jacobson, a Dupont Circle advisory neighborhood commissioner, has built quite the war chest in his nonpartisan bid to unseat State Board of Education member Mary Lord. His $18,216 on hand is particularly impressive considering SBOE races have a $200 donation limit.

More details after the jump.

Reports for Kenyan McDuffie (D-Ward 5), Vincent Orange (D-At Large) and a few others were not uploaded to the Office of Campaign Finance Web site as of Tuesday evening.
