Mayor's Race: Eric Garcetti Edges Wendy Greuel In Chase For Campaign Cash
Eric Garcetti has expanded his narrow lead over mayoral rival Wendy Greuel in the race for campaign cash.
In a statement, the Garcetti's campaign boasted that they have the momentum with two months left before the March 5 primary. "This will be one of the most expensive races in LA history, so we must keep raising money and getting out the vote every day until Election Day, and we will," said strategist Bill Carrick.
"We expected Councilman Garcetti would be much higher than this given the fact that he held the City's purse strings as President of the Council. Other than being the incumbent Mayor, there is probably no better job to leverage donors."
