Some observations –

The biggest money raiser by far is Democratic Candidate Carolyn Bourdeaux, but she only has $863,000 on hand, which is about the same as Renee Unterman. Bourdeaux’s totals include money from her run two years ago.

Of all the Democratic candidates, only one donated to their own campaign.  Most did not even loan their campaign money, including the top money raiser, Carolyn Bourdeaux.  That makes sense – they only want to use other people’s money for their campaign to spend other people’s money!  NOTE: If you donate to your own campaign it is difficult to get it back. That is why so many candidates loan their campaign money instead.

Dr. Lerah Lee suspended her campaign on February 1.  But before she did that, she raised AND SPENT a BUNCH of money, most of it (almost $367,000) to one company, Campaign Solutions out of Virginia.  It is also curious to note that her Itemized individual contributions were only $134,632 compared to her Unitemized individual contributions, which came to $442,825.  Campaigns don’t have to disclose donations under $100, but it is almost inconceivable that she would have over 4,400 doners who all gave under the reporting limit.

Democratic Candidate Marqus Cole has spent every penny he has raised.  That is a very efficient campaign!
