Mayor Peter Carlisle raised $198,000 toward his re-election bid during the first six months of 2012, according to a report filed Monday with the state Campaign Spending Commission.
Carlisle, who won a special election in 2010 to fill the final two years in the term vacated by Mufi Hannemann, began July with $246,000 on hand for the stretch run to the Aug. 11 primary. His total for the current campaign cycle was $638,000, which includes $78,000 carried over from his 2010 campaign.
Spending reports for the first half of 2012 are due Thursday.
Reports from mayoral challengers Kirk Caldwell and Ben Cayetano were not yet immediately available.
