WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. Councilmember Jack Evans still has raised the most money of the candidates for mayor of Washington, and Councilmember Muriel Bowser still has the most left to spend.

Both have a big lead on Mayor Vincent Gray, who just announced this month that he's seeking re-election and hasn't raised a penny so far. The Democratic primary is April 1.

The candidates filed financial reports late Tuesday. Evans is the first candidate to top $1 million and has $582,000 left to spend. Bowser has raised $920,000 and has $756,000 in the bank.

Councilmember Tommy Wells has brought in $420,000 but has just $132,000 left.

Councilmember Vincent Orange has raised $80,000 and spent none of it. Former State Department official Reta Lewis has raised $203,000 and has $58,000 in cash on hand.
