With one week before the election, the latest campaign finance reports from Mark Boughton and Chris Setaro show that both candidates are virtually even in total money raised.
Boughton has raised a total of 14,400 dollars for the 7-day preceding the election reporting period (10/01/19-10/27/19) with 10,150.00 coming from individuals and 4,250.00 raised by committees.
As of 10/28, Boughton has raised a total of 176,725.00 for his re-election quest.
Not to be outdone, Setaro has kept on pace with Boughton by raising the most money ever for a Democratic mayoral candidate.
For the 7-day preceding the election reporting period (10/01/19-10/27/19), Setaro raised 10.500 with 4,150.00 coming from individuals, 4,300 from committees, and 2,050.00 in program book ads.
As of 10/28, Setaro raised a total of 172,563.07 for his mayoral campaign.
I’ll have a more detailed report breakdown that will highlight how much money was raised from Danbury residents versus out of city contributions later today.
