Bringing in the dough

Mayor Jim Hahn's reelection campaign still leads in the money race, but the rivals are moving closer. Bob Hertzberg filed reports yesterday showing he had raised more than anyone elese in the latest period and now has taken in $1.1 million. Antonio Villaraigosa also outraised the mayor this period and is at $640,000, Bernard Parks at $426,000 and Richard Alarcon at $254,000. It seems to be slowing down for Alarcon, who reports collecting just $75,000 the last three months. Hahn, meanwhile, has raised about $2.2 million. Challenger Walter Moore has taken to complaining that he's not being covered in the Times because he's the only Republican in the non-partisan race, but the real reason is because he doesn't have the support to show up in stories such as these in the Times, Daily News and Breeze.
