War chest report: Campaign fundraising’s first big reveal

The first wave of campaign fundraising reports are due today. To an extent, they show the strength of candidates to be competitive in the August primary and November General Election.

Must Read Alaska will update this report as the candidates file them; the deadline is midnight for filing with Alaska Public Offices Commission.

Readers can see the entire listing at the APOC web site and explore the donor listings.

RESULTS MAY VARY

The fundraising amounts do not tell the whole story, as candidates filed for office at different times; some filed only recently, but still must report through Feb. 1.

There are other constraints that skew fundraising results: Sitting legislators are prohibited from raising funds while they are in session, while in the case of Mike Dunleavy, a separate election effort has started with a well-funded independent expenditure group that has entirely different reporting requirements.

Here are the amounts candidates in some of the possibly competitive races have reported raising up until the Feb. 1 deadline (R=Republican, D=Democrat, UD=Undeclared Democrat):
