Here’s another slice of the most recent round of campaign contribution data.
I’ve ranked all candidates and elected officials by the total contributions received by their campaigns during the period from January 1, 2013 through June 30, 2013. This period covers the full annual legislative session.
Here are the top 15 in terms of money raised during the period, all incumbents.
Gov. Neil Abercrombie and Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell were in a league of their own, well above Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui, who ranked #3.
Abercrombie and Caldwell combined to raise 53 percent of the total.
Senate President Donna Mercado Kim is the top ranked woman on the list at #8, and only two other women are among the top 15.
The full list of all 102 candidates who reported receiving contributions during the first six months of 2013 can be found here.
