    Councilmember Muriel Bowser has widened her fundraising advantage over her rivals in the D.C. mayor's race.

    Bowser, the Democratic nominee, has more than $1 million to spend between now and November.

     

    She reported raising $511,000 in her most recent financial report, which was filed late Monday. For her entire campaign, she's raised $2.7 million, and has just over $1 million in cash on hand.

    Bowser defeated Mayor Vincent Gray in the April Democratic primary. The Democratic nominee has gone on to win every mayoral election in the District.

    Councilmember David Catania, an independent, raised $221,000 over the past two months. He has $463,000 left to spend.

    Independent former councilmember Carol Schwartz brought in $65,000, more than half of which she lent to the campaign herself.
