John Bel Edwards campaign raises 10-plus times as much as David Vitter in past 10 days

Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Bel Edwards may have lagged behind the other major candidates for governor in fundraising throughout much of the campaign, but that has changed, according to the latest campaign finance reports.

He’s still behind what Republican gubernatorial candidates David Vitter has raised and spent, but Edwards reported receiving more than $750,000 on Sunday and Monday alone. That brings his contributions from donors since Nov. 2 to the $1.5 million mark — outraising Vitter, by far, during the last couple weeks.

Vitter during the same period reported $107,500 in contributions during the special reporting period. He hasn’t reported any contributions since Friday.

The contributions are detailed in “special reports” filed with state campaign finance offices.

1. He might win the votes but those voting machines will be fixed in favor of Vitter.
