Raising Campaign Cash: Houston City Elections. Semi-Finals

I have just a few candidates left who have not filed. Most of them are fringe candidates. This update contains the following.

Council Member Boykins raised 140,174 and has $69,782 COH. A pretty poor showing for the Houston Fire Fighters Union endorsed candidate.

Council Member Dave Martin District E raised 49,450 with 151,184 COH. His opponents have not filed.

Council Member Amanda Edwards raised $73,807 with $192,791 COH.

Leticia Plummer for Position 5 raised $64,519 with$43, 795 COH.

Kendall Baker raised $15,810 from his own pocket with $260 COH.

Marcell McClinton for Position 3 raised $25,823 with $8,675 COH.

Christel Bastida for Postion 4 raised $1,103 with $750 COH and a $200 Loan.

David Robinson raised $88,616 its $262,221 COH.

Mayor Turner raised $1,698,596 with $3,218,268 COH.

WOW! Raj Salhotra had a very strong showing for Position 1 with $220,377 raised compared to the incumbent Mike Knox with only $40,295. Raj has $178,536 COH compared to Knox at $41,171.

Bill King raised $684,842 including a $100,000 loan. He has $318,320 COH.

Chris Brown raised $66,611 with $234,350 COH.

Some people should not be running for office. This isn’t a game. Derrick Brozerunning for Mayor raised $1,379. Not even enough to by yard signs. Giang Nguyen raised $250 with a $20,000 loan. 

Erica McCrutcheon needs to take some training on how to fill out ethics reports. I believe she raised $5100 and has a $5000 loan from The Dunamis Group LLC which she owns.

City Councilman Mike Knox reports only $41,171 raised. I would have expected much more.

Emily Detoto raised only$2600 with a $500 loan.

Buzbee is self financing putting $5.5 MILLION of his own money into his account.

Michael Kubosh has reported raising only $43,000 with a $276,000 outstanding loan. $10,000 came from the FireFighters PAC.
