Melvin Priester Jr. filed http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/documents/2014/apr/04/melvin-priester-jr-48-hour-report/">a 48-hour report today showing that he has raised $6,150 more in mayoral contributions. That brings his total to $110,785 by our math to Lumumba's $138,801. Horhn is in third with $104,593
Harvey Johnson Jr. has raised $7,000 more in campaign dollars this week according to http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/documents/2014/apr/04/harvey-johnson-48-hour-report/">his 48-hour report, bringing his total to $67,355.
(For the record, both of these reports and some earlier ones are near-illegible, which is disconcerting coming from serious candidates for mayor. Priester, for one, spent a lot of his JFP interview talking about getting details right. Why not start during the campaign?!?)
