How much money have Las Vegas mayoral candidates raised?

Updated May 17, 2024 - 10:11 am

While filing to run for mayor of city of Las Vegas is a fairly inexpensive $100, keeping a campaign and candidate afloat has traditionally required much more spending, meaning substantial fundraising in most cases.

A total of 15 candidates threw their hat in the race to replace Mayor Carolyn Goodman who is out of term limits.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal compiled how much each hopeful raised as is required to be disclosed by the Nevada Secretary of State’s office.

The filings are due on a quarterly and yearly basis and the last one accounts for fundraising through March.
