Harp Makes Campaign Cash Correction

The Harp campaign made two errors when it submitted its most recent campaign finance disclosure statement: It overstated its revenue by $3,625 and its debt by $21,244.
The campaign’s correct totals, according to the amended filing, are: $100,330 raised in September, $5,450 on hand, and a total of $4,200 in unpaid expenses, all as of Oct. 3.
Harp, a state senator, is running for mayor against Justin Elicker, an aldermen. Election day is Nov. 5.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but according to these updated numbers, this means that Justin Elicker’s campaign out-raised Harp’s campaign.
There are no more filings to be made between now and election day, correct? Can’t wait to see the cash flood that pours in from all corners once the final filing is completed.
Party campaign allies don’t get certified vote correctly & timely to City Clerk after nominating convention. Campaign finance filings and/or accounting inaccurate or incomplete. Family business financial issues. Hope patterns not repeated in governance after January 1.

Yes, but, it means if anything they’re just even more neck and neck. These new numbers mean Elicker outraised Harp by $23.
Union candidates don’t need cash on hand. They just call everything in from affiliates and stamp it, “Not coordinated with any campaign or committee.” This article is an attempt to make the game look fair at worst, and amusing bookkeeping at best.
“Dwightblock” spot on. Contribute when the scrutiny of the numbers is low and does not impact your business. Classic PAC maneuver.
I thought I heard or read somewhere that there is another campaign filing due something like Oct. 29.
After much difficulty (the city clerk website shifts suddenly to a state website), I think I found a state pdf that says yes, a “7th Day Preceding Election Filing” is due, in this case on Oct. 29.
Perhaps someone from one of the campaigns might be good enough to confirm or deny.
