An article Saturday incorrectly reported that D.C. City Council candidate Brian Moore had included $1,405 in unitemized deductions in a campaign finance report. Moore reported $1,405 in unitemized contributions.
City Council member John Ray (D-At Large) has raised $156,127 for his reelection campaign, according to a report filed with the D.C. Campaign Finance Office.
Ray is one of six candidates seeking two at-large council seats in the November election. Ray and four other candidates -- Josephine Butler of the Statehood Party, Republican Carol Schwartz, Maurice Jackson of the Communist Party and incumbent Jerry A. Moore Jr., a write-in candidate -- filed campaign reports on Wednesday. Independent candidate Brian Moore filed a finance report on Thursday, according to the finance office.
On Thursday the finance office incorrectly reported Ray and Butler had not filed reports on Wednesday.
Ray's report showed he has spent $91,886 of his contributions, second only to the $175,000 that Moore raised for his unsuccessful bid for the Republican nomination in the September party primary.
Ray's finance report showed contributions from several investors from District Cablevision Inc., the cable television firm that is negotiating a contract with the city.
Butler reported receiving a total of $9,070 in contributions and spending $8,776. Butler, who has been endorsed by local unions representing tens of thousands of workers, reported $1,000 contributions from the Food & Allied Service Trades council and the Office & Professional Employees International Union Local 2.
Brian Moore raised $5,577 and has spent $3,786, according to his finance report. His report included $1,405 in deductions that were not itemized.
Schwartz, who defeated Moore in the primary, has raised $55,000. Jackson's report listed $2,789 in contributions.
