The Mike Rawlings fundraising juggernaut continues.
He raised more than a half million dollars in April for his mayoral campaign for a total of some $1.6 million in the three months he’s been campaigning. None of that comes from loans from his personal fortune.
Rawlings has far outpaced his opponents in fundraising and has been able to build a campaign organization with the ability to repeatedly reach votes all over Dallas.
In the last month, he spent another $661,000 on his campaign. That’s in addition to the more than $800,000 his campaign shelled out in February and March.
More than 500 individuals and political groups gave to his campaign in this reporting period.
He again spent tens of thousands on consulting, advertising, printing and other campaign building expenses.
