The latest round of campaign finance reports showed that while the summer months slowed the money flow for some candidates, others saw a steep uptick in the money they have raised for November's election. This reporting period ran from July 1 to Aug. 10, and was filed Aug. 15. The top fund-getter this period was Supervisor Andrea McGimsey, a Democrat running for reelection to the Board of Supervisors in a new district, Broad Run. McGimsey raised $29,667 in contributions and in-kind donations this period, with a number of donations passing the $1,000 mark. McGimsey's big reporting period this month brought her campaign's total to $35,486.88.
