Mayor Jim Newberry's re-election campaign said Thursday that he has raised $267,079 from more than 400 contributors since June.
"I am humbled by the strong and early support from so many people from across our community," Newberry said in a statement.
Newberry is seeking re-election for a second term as mayor. He will hold an official campaign kick-off rally at the Lexington Convention Center on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 5:15 p.m.
Newberry is facing a challenge from former Mayor Teresa Isaac. She had raised $32,000 as of Sept. 30, according to state campaign finance documents.
Eric Patrick Marr, a local consultant, has also entered the race, but showed no fundraising activity by Sept. 30, according to the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance.
The election is in May.
