Peacock had $157,000 left to spend, which is far more than any other mayoral candidate. That suggests Peacock is holding money until the November general election.
Scott Stone, a businessman, raised about $13,000 this period. His campaign for the Republican nomination has raised nearly $120,000, though that includes a $30,000 loan he made to his campaign. He had $22,000 at the start of the month.
Here is how the other Democrats fared:
▪ Jennifer Roberts, a former county commissioner, has raised the most money overall of any candidate, with $367,000. But the pace of her fundraising slowed in August, as she raised just under $32,000. She had nearly $55,000 left to spend.
▪ At-large City Council member David Howard raised nearly $37,000 this period, for a total of $227,000. He had $37,000 in the bank.
▪ Michael Barnes, the mayor pro tem, raised $3,700. He has raised nearly $29,000 for this race, though he started the campaign with $30,000 from a 2013 election.
