Pre-election campaign finance reports were due a couple of days ago in the Horry County Council chairman race. Not surprisingly, Mark Lazarus is far, far in the lead when it comes to fundraising, reporting more than $68,000 in total contributions. He's also spent more than $40,000, which is more than his four opponents combined have even raised.
Full reports are available, as always on the state Ethics Commission website.
But if you're just interested in the main numbers:
Mark Lazarus: Raised $68,048, spent $40,317.57
