D.C. mayoral race fundraising deadline comes Monday

WASHINGTON (AP) - Candidates for mayor of the District of Columbia are running out of time to raise money to finance their bids.

The latest fundraising deadline for candidates in the April 1 Democratic primary is midnight Monday.

Mayor Vincent Gray brought in the most money during the last fundraising period, which was his first since entering the race in December. In total dollars raised, he trailed D.C. Councilmembers Jack Evans and Muriel Bowser, both of whom have brought in more than $1 million.

Gray is seeking a second term. Polls have shown him leading the other seven candidates, but with no more than 28 percent support.
