Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton raised the most campaign cash for the reporting period of April 18 to May 2 with $7,360 in donations, according to the latest campaign finance reports.

The first-term mayor has raised $164,572 to date heading into the May 17 nonpartisan primary. She has the most money left in her campaign coffers with $45,179, according to campaign finance reports filed Wednesday night with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance.

Challenger David Kloiber, a first-term Lexington-Fayette Urban County Councilman who runs his family’s foundation, has raised the most to date with $308,740, thanks largely to $275,000 in personal loans to his campaign. Kloiber reported raising $100 this cycle. Kloiber has spent the bulk of that money on television advertisements, campaign finance reports show.

Adrian Wallace, a development company executive who has previously run for the Lexington council, raised $2,300 from April 18 to May 2, campaign finance records show. He has raised $6,900 to date and has $1,050 left to spend less than 15 days before the primary.

William Weyman, who has run for the office before and is not actively campaigning, has not filed any campaign finance reports.
