Only two Maui candidates reported receiving campaign contributions in the days leading up to today's primary election: incumbents state Rep. Gil Keith-Agaran and state Sen. J. Kalani English.
The state Campaign Spending Commission required reports by Wednesday night of any so-called "late" contributions received over the past week by candidates appearing on the primary ballot.
A report was not required if candidates did not collect money since the previous July-1-to-27 reporting period.
Agaran, who is seeking re-election to his House District 9 seat covering Kahului, Puunene and parts of Wailuku, reported a $1,000 contribution from Outrigger Enterprises on Aug. 1. That adds to the $78,423 he's reported raising for his campaign through July 27.
His opponent, Maui County Council Member Joe Pontanilla, has raised $22,949 and reported no late contributions.
The next round of campaign finance reports for primary candidates is due Aug. 31.
English, who is seeking re-election to his Senate District 7 seat covering East Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe, reported a $2,000 contribution from RAI Service Co. of North Carolina on Aug. 3. That adds to the $99,127 he's reported raising for his campaign through July 27.
His Democratic opponent, Barbara Haliniak, has reported raising $14,418 through July 27. Kanohowailuku Helm, a nonpartisan candidate for the state Senate District 7 seat, has reported collecting $19,182 for his campaign.
