Councilmember Ikaika Anderson leads in Q3 fundraising for Congressional seat

Hawaii Independent Staff

Chad Blair, reporting for Civil Beat:

While Anderson only entered the race Aug. 8, he pulled in an impressive $163,000 in the third quarter, a lot of it from big name developers, engineers, real estate interests and contractors who may wish to curry favor with the man who chairs the city’s Zoning and Planning Committee.

Fellow Councilmember Stanley Chang still leads in overall fundraising, though, with $309,000 in aggregate donations, $125,000 of which was raised in the last quarter.
