WASHINGTON — The Democratic mayoral nominee in the District of Columbia has extended her fundraising advantage over her rivals and has more than $1 million to spend between now and November.
D.C. Councilmember Muriel Bowser reported raising $511,000 in her most recent financial report, which was filed late Monday. For her entire campaign, she's raised $2.7 million. She has just over $1 million in cash on hand.
Bowser defeated Mayor Vincent Gray in the April Democratic primary. The Democratic nominee has gone on to win every mayoral election in the District.
Independent Councilmember David Catania raised $221,000 over the past two months. He has $463,000 left to spend.
Independent former councilmember Carol Schwartz brought in $65,000 — more than half of which she lent to the campaign herself.
