Thompson Raises $200,000, Clears Matchable Threshold by a Little

Bill Thompson raised $200,711 and spent $637,147 in his last campaign finance filing, covering the last two months.

One reader pointed out to me that Thompson now has $251,836 in matchable contributions, just barely over the $250,000 threshold required before the city’s Campaign Finance Board starts giving out money.

Which won’t allow much margin for error. If about $1,800 of those matching claims are rejected for whatever reason, it could delay Thompson’s ability to get money from the board.
