After last month’s Democratic primary, Republican Darryl Nirenberg tops campaign donation leaderboard

The November 2 general election is less than four months away, and nearly all of the candidates running for City Council spent most of their money in last month’s Democratic primary.

Republican candidate Darryl Nirenberg has $48,552 in the bank — more than anyone else running for Council.

That’s according to the latest figures just released by the Virginia Public Access Project.

The Council candidate who gets the most votes is named vice mayor. There are eight candidates running for the six-seat Council, and independent candidate Florence King has the least amount in the bank with $16.

Mayor Justin Wilson raised $3,722 and spent almost $21,000 between May 28 and June 30, leaving him with just $13,343 in the bank. Wilson spent the bulk of his nearly $175,000 campaign finances on the Democratic primary last month in his successful rematch against former Mayor Allison Silberberg.

Republican Annetta Catchings is Wilson’s opponent, and raised $425 between May 28 and June 30, and has a balance of $3,687.
