Who’s ahead in the fundraising race for Seattle mayor?
SEATTLE — Who’s likely to be the next Seattle mayor?
The primary election is less than four months away, on Aug. 6. And a key gauge of where the candidates stand is fundraising.
According to the Seattle Met magazine, City Councilman Tim Burgess leads the pack with $195,000 raised so far. Mayor Mike McGinn is not far behind at $154,000. One surprise is that far behind all the other major candidates is former Councilman Peter Steinbrueck with only $44,000.
The top two finishers in the primary move onto the general election in November.
