Today’s the last day of the current fundraising period for the Sacramento mayoral race, and for the first time, Mayor Heather Fargo is holding her own against former NBA star Kevin Johnson.
Friday, October 3, 2008
Johnson campaign manager Steve Maviglio says his candidate brought in a little under $240,000 from early August through today. Johnson has $140,000 in the bank.
Fargo campaign manager Dale Howard says the mayor raised around $175,000 and has about $110,000 on hand.
Johnson has used his star power to vastly out-raise Fargo throughout the race. Counting his $500,000 loan, Johnson has brought in well over a million dollars.
