Vice Mayor Jim Gray out-raised Mayor Jim Newberry by $138,405 in the latest campaign finance reporting period, but $100,000 of Gray’s total came in a loan he made to his own campaign.

Gray raised $200,959 for his mayoral bid from Oct. 2 to Oct. 18. He received $98,600 from individual contributors and $2,300 from political action committees.

Mayor Jim Newberry raised $62,554 in the same period, including $1,000 from PACs and the rest from individuals.

The campaign finance reports, filed Monday with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, are the last before the Nov. 2 election.

In all, Gray has raised about $1.2 million in the campaign. About a third of that, or $380,000, is in loans from the candidate.

Newberry has raised $1,050,000. He has loaned his campaign no money. His wife Cheryl Ann, a homemaker, has contributed $2,000.

The reports show that, as of Oct. 18, Gray had $77,000 on hand. Newberry had $83,000.
