DOVER, Del. (AP) — Campaign finance reports show Wilmington's mayor trailing opponents in fundraising ahead of the Sept. 13 Democratic primary.
Mike Purzycki, head of the Riverfront Development Corporation, reported raising more than $176,000 since January.
Incumbent Dennis Williams raised just over $17,000, less than one-tenth of Purzycki's haul.
Williams' campaign treasurer Ed Osborne suggested Tuesday that much of Purzycki's money comes from Republicans, who can't vote in the Democratic primary.
Purzycki had about $40,000 cash on hand this week, compared to about $13,000 for Williams.
Former city council president Norman Griffiths raised about $12,000 and had about $27,000 available cash, roughly equal to his loans to his campaign.
Councilman Theo Gregory raised about $18,000, ending the period with a cash balance of $1,150.
Other candidates had until midnight Tuesday to file their reports.
