At-Large Councilmember Vincent Orange likes his houses tiny and his campaign treasuries large. Orange, who has more cash on hand than any other at-large candidate, turned in his December and January campaign finance totals Monday along with the rest of this year’s declared candidates. Read on for the results.
(For now, LL won’t be posting Ward 2 and Ward 4 breakdowns, since Jack Evans and Brandon Todd aren’t facing any significant challengers yet).
Former 2014 at-large candidate White pulls in a big haul for his first returns since closing his exploratory committee.
Cash on hand: $53,248.35.
Orange ended the cycle on Jan. 31 with more money than his leading challengers’ treasuries combined. Muriel Bowser‘s Green Team comes in big for new member Orange, with $500 contributions each from Bowser pal David Jannarone and former FreshPAC chairman Chico Horton.
Cash on hand: $145,379.46.
The latest fundraising totals put Garber and White, Orange’s leading challengers, roughly equal on fundraising.
Cash on hand: $50,790.56.

Without challengers but facing a potential rematch with 2015 special election second-placer Trayon White, May has kicked the Green Team fundraising machine into gear. Among her donors: Bowser chief of staff John Falcicchio, and Bowser herself ($500). May is also a favorite of big city contractors, taking in at least $3,000 associated with Fort Myer Construction.
Cash on hand: $90,946.23.
