Late Night Shocker: Elizabeth Embry Raises $416K

The last of the six major mayoral candidates, Elizabeth Embry, filed her campaign finance report late tonight and it took everyone by surprise. Embry raised $416,000, only spent $22,000, and has $393,000 cash on hand. She has significantly more money in the bank than Sheila Dixon, Nick Mosby, or Carl Stokes. Only Catherine Pugh raised more money (Sheila Dixon had virtually the same amount raised, $7,000 more than Embry, and ended up with much less cash on hand despite starting ahead by $77,000) and only Pugh and David Warnock have more cash on hand (he loaned himself $950,000).

A good performance from Embry. Now she has to use that money to attract some voters.
