Flexing his incumbent muscle, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's reelection campaign looks to have at least double the cash of his rivals Bill Peduto and Michael Lamb.
Ravenstahl's campaign announced this morning that as it had $781,510.76 in cash at the end of 2012 as of today. Peduto's team said last week it raised almost $330,000 by the end of the year, but blacked out of the councilman's brief report how much cash was left after expenses. Lamb, the city's fiscal watchdog, has not released any totals but is due to formally announce his candidacy tomorrow.
The year-end report filing deadline is Thursday, Jan. 31.
UPDATE: Ravenstahl's figure was reported in the disclosure of financial interests form all city elected officials were required to file today. Lamb reported having $236,795.75 in his main campaign account and Peduto only listed his city council account, which was zeroed out last year.
