According to recent campaign filings, state Senate candidate Jesse Kiehl has raised the most of any Juneau candidate running in next week’s general election.

As Election Day approaches, candidates are required to report expenditures and income at regular intervals to the Alaska Public Offices Commission.

The most recent reports are called seven-day reports because they are due seven days before the election. They reflect money raised and spent between Oct. 6 and Saturday.

Kiehl, a Democrat running in Senate District Q, reports raising $117,354 in total campaign income — $11,500 of that came in during the last three weeks.

Candidates running in Juneau races historically have not raised more than $100,000. 

Kiehl’s opponent, independent Don Etheridge, raised $51,201 total.  

In the House District 34 race, Democrat Andi Story raised the most money during the three week filing period with $17,598. Over the course of her campaign, she has raised $91,294.

Jerry Nankervis, the Republican running in that district, has raised about $94,547 so far.

In House District 33, independent candidate Chris Dimond raised more than $79,278 total.

Gov. Bill Walker endorsed Dimond on Tuesday.

Filings for Dimond’s opponent, Democrat Sara Hannan, show her campaign has raised $63,132 so far.

Democratic candidate for governor Mark Begich has endorsed Hannan.
