Nutter heads toward primary with $1.6 million on hand


Mayor Nutter raised nearly $1 million since last year, including over $360,000 in the month of January alone.

In all, he ended 2010 with about $1.2 million in the bank, according to the first public look at Nutter's campaign finance activities in more than a year. And with the additional $300,000, he heads toward the May Democratic primary - in which he currently faces no opponent - with more than $1.6 million available to him to spend.

That figure is expected to grow as soon as tomorrow, when he hosts his official kickoff fundraiser for his second term.

The report, filed this afternoon with election officials, shows that the mayor spent over $700,000 in 2010. Nearly half of that was spent in contributions to various local and state candidates and committees.
