Chris Doherty ran for re-election as Scranton's mayor last year and is also running for governor. That means he was raising money for both races at the same time. While formal reports are not due until the end of the month the Doherty campaign has released some preliminary numbers:
The Doherty for Mayor committee reported raising a total of $674,793 in 2009. Mayor Doherty successfully won both the Democratic and Republican primaries last year and went on to win re-election to his third term in November. The Doherty for Pennsylvania committee, Mayor Doherty’s gubernatorial campaign committee, will report raising $441,369 in 2009 despite having to share time and attention with the mayor’s race.
