RICHMOND, Va. – Newly released campaign reports indicate that over the past month, Jack Berry again raised more cash than his opponents in the mayoral race.

In the last filing period, from Oct. 1 to Oct. 26, Berry raised $209,982.  If a $150,000 loan from his campaign manager is factored into the totals, Berry technically raised the most money in the mayoral campaign. It’s worth noting that Berry’s campaign didn’t factor in the loan when they sent out a press release detailing how much money they raised in October.

The total raised so far by his campaign in 2016 was $746,181 (with the loan it would be $896,000).

Candidate Levar Stoney raised a total of $842, 980 in the race. Both figures are historic amounts.

In third and fourth place, financially, are candidates Joe Morrissey and Jon Baliles. Morrissey’s total was not yet listed on, but he has so far raised $194,806.

Baliles raised five percent of Berry’s October total (sans loan). The $9,905 that Baliles raised in the past month brings his total so far to $128,691.

“We are seeing incredible momentum in the days leading up to Election Day,” said Berry. “Our support is coming from individuals all across the city.
