HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Mufi Hannemann is leading the money race. The new campaign spending report out Monday says the former Honolulu mayor has raised more than $2.4-million.

More than $800,000 of that was collected in the first half of this year.

The Republican front runner, Duke Aiona, has collected more than $2.3-million and the man who's been leading the polls, Neil Abercrombie, has raised a little more than $2-million.

Kirk Caldwell has raised the most money in the Honolulu mayor's race, with nearly $580,000.

Peter Carlisle has $290,000 and Panos Prevedouros has $36,000.

Rod Tam's numbers weren't available.

Monday was the reporting deadline for candidates' fundraising through the first six months of this year.

The next report is due on September 8.
