The two candidates are running for the Precinct 3 commissioner seat in Harris County.
Ramsey’s $410,000 was raised across 137 donations, while Moore’s $205,000 was raised across exactly 200 donations, according to each candidate’s filing reports. Moore outraised Ramsey in the previous filing report Oct. 5, raising about $370,000 compared to Ramsey’s $195,000.
Ramsey’s largest donor in the Oct. 29 report was the Steve Radack Campaign, which donated $150,000. Radack, who is currently serving as commissioner in Precinct 3, announced last year he would not run for re-election.
Radack, a Republican, has since endorsed Ramsey to be his successor for the position. Although Radack is not running for re-election, his campaign filed a finance report most recently in July, noting a contribution balance of $1.4 million.
Ramsey’s other top donations included $20,000 from the Greater Houston Builders Association’s Home PAC and $15,000 from HPCP Investments LLC, a northwest Houston-based financial services firm.
Moore received two donations of $10,000 from individual contributors that were noted in the Oct. 26 report. Moore also received $5,000 donations from several groups and individuals, including from the American Federation of State and County Municipal Employees and Eight By Four Construction, LLC.
Of Moore’s 200 donations, 19 were donations of $5,000 or more, and 89 were donations for $100 or less. For Ramsey, 16 donations were of $5,000 or more—including the $150,000 donation from the Steve Radack Campaign—while 44 donations were for $100 or less.
Dating back through the last three campaign filing reports—with contributions dating back through March—Moore has received just under $40,000 from donations from outside of the state of Texas, including the $5,000 donation from the American Federation of State and County Municipal Employees, a Washington, D.C.-based trade union representing public employees.
Ramsey has received roughly $13,000 in contributions from outside the state over that same time, including a $2,500 contribution from the Taylor Morrison Inc. Building Strong Business PAC in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Both candidates spent similar amounts on their campaigns over the past three weeks, with Moore spending about $532,000 and Ramsey spending about $529,000, according to each candidate’s report. Ramsey had about $132,000 on hand as of the Oct. 26 filing, while Moore had about $106,000.
