The latest campaign finance reports in the Sacramento mayor’s race are due today, and challenger Kevin Johnson continues his fundraising dominance over Mayor Heather Fargo.
Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Johnson’s campaign says it’s raised $170,000 and has almost $80,000 left in its account.
Fargo brought in around $51,000 but has just $15,000 on hand to spend.
Both campaigns are technically in debt for more money than they have in the bank. Johnson still lists the earlier $500,000 loan he made to his campaign as a debt, while Fargo owes about $28,000.
Johnson has now raised almost $1.3 million since he entered the race in March – although that includes his loan. Fargo has only brought in about a quarter as much.
