WASHINGTON (AP) - Former District of Columbia mayor Vincent Gray has raised more money than the incumbent he’s trying to unseat on the D.C. Council.

Financial reports filed late Thursday show Gray’s campaign has raised $77,000 since he began his political comeback last month. He has $70,000 on hand.

Gray, a Democrat, is running for the D.C. Council in the ward east of the Anacostia River where he lives. The current council member, Democrat Yvette Alexander, raised nearly $20,000 during the same period. She has just short of $51,000 on hand.

Gray lost his bid for a second term as mayor in 2014 amid a long-running federal investigation of his 2010 campaign. Six people who helped get him elected pleaded guilty to felonies. Gray denied wrongdoing and prosecutors decided not to charge him.
