November 07, 2012 - Sixth District County Councilman Steve Stenger's committee, Citizens for Steve Stenger, raised more than 10 times the amount of his opponent, Republican Tony Pousosa, in his re-election bid.
Pousosa, a Ward 1 Green Park alderman, is challenging Stenger, who sought a second, four-year term on the council in Tuesday's election — after the Call went to press.
Candidates were required to file campaign finance reports eight days before the Nov. 6 election.
As of Oct. 25, Stenger raised a total of $663,796.11, while his expenditures reached $413,226.72.
