RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Former Secretary of the Commonwealth Levar Stoney continues to rake in the money in the Richmond mayoral race. He’s now raised more than any previous candidate for Richmond mayor, a record formerly held by 2008 candidate Robert Grey Jr.

Stoney took in another $193,325 in July and August bringing his fundraising total to more than $610,000.

Former Venture Richmond Director Jack Berry reported raising more than $164,000 over the last two months. His total is now $375,000.

Controversial former state Del. Joe Morrissey has taken in more than $142,000 for his campaign for mayor. Much of his money comes from funds leftover from his previous races.  

City Council member Jon Baliles has raised $115,000. Baliles took Bruce Tyler’s seat four years ago. In this race for mayor, Tyler has raised $55,000.

Current council member Michelle Mosby has collected more than $26,000.

Bobby Junes has raised $120 and architect Lawrence Williams, who’s making his third bid for the seat, as not reported raising any money.

Richmond voters will cast their ballots for their choice of mayor on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
