Other reported raising funds are Democrat Carl Bergmanson at $10,702; independent Diane Sare at $5,850; and Democrat William Araujo at $1,154.
Democrat Jeff Boss has raised no money, according to the report, and does not expect to raise more than $4,000 for the primary.
"Candidates who raise at least $380,000 can obtain up to $3.5 million in public funds for the primary," according to elections officials. "Candidates receive $2 in public funds for every $1 they raise privately, though the first $122,000 raised privately is not eligible for matching funds. Publicly funded candidates must keep their overall primary spending below $5.6 million. The law does exempt a few expenses from the cap, including candidate travel and election night activities. There is no spending limit for non-participating candidates but they must abide by the contribution limit of $3,800 for the primary and general elections."
