LOS ANGELES, Calif.–City Controller Wendy Greuel and Councilman Eric Garcetti raised nearly equal amounts of money for their respective mayoral campaigns, putting them well ahead of other candidates eight months before the March primary, documents filed with the City Ethics Commission show.

Garcetti and Greuel each raised about $2.2 million since announcing their candidacies last year, with Garcetti nudging out Greuel by a $322.31 margin. Both candidates have $1.8 million in their campaign war chests.

City Councilwoman Jan Perry, another top contender in the mayor’s race, has raised $826,930, less than half of Greuel and Garcetti’s haul. Attorney and former radio host Kevin James, the only conservative candidate in the race, has raised $220,000, according to his campaign, about one-quarter of what Perry raised.

Austin Beutner raised a significant amount of money–$1.9 million–before dropping out of the race in May, most of which he returned to donors.

In March, the City Ethics Commission, which sets fundraising limits for mayoral elections, raised the maximum amount donors can give to candidates for citywide offices from $1,000 to $1,300 to account for inflation since the limits were first set in 1990. The increase allowed candidates to hit up donors who had previously maxxed out their contributions for more money.

Political analysts expect voters’ attention to be on the presidential campaign through November and for the mayoral race not to heat up until January, after the winter holidays.
