PORTLAND, Ore. -- The results aren’t quite in on the two Portland general election races, for mayor and an open City Council seat. However, the money is certainly flowing into the candidates’ coffers.
With three weeks left before the election, mayoral wannabes Charlie Hales and Jefferson Smith have raised more than $1.8 million collectively for the general and primary elections, with Hales pulling in larger donations but holding only a slight edge in fundraising.
(Eileen Brady , who lost in the primary, spent another $1 million in losing to Hales and Smith.)
On the Council side, Mary Nolan and Amanda Fritz have collected about $550,000 between them, with Nolan nabbing $447,000 of that total (Fritz had set strict fundraising limits for most of the campaign).
