Tulsi Gabbard raised more than $420,000 in the April-June period.

According to her July quarterly filing with the Federal Election Commission, the Hawaii Democrat is sitting on $1.88 million in cash.

Gabbard, seeking her third term representing Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District, spent $148,000 in the most recent reporting cycle.

Gabbard’s primary opponent, Shay Chan Hodges, raised just $3,100, spent $147 and had about $3,000 left in cash.

Republican Eric Hafner reported no financial activity, while the FEC said another Republican, Angela Aulani Kaaihue, listed no records at all.

Nonpartisan candidate Richard Turner listed a zero balance.

Meanwhile, in the race for the 1st Congressional District, former Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa raised $152,000 in the second quarter, spent less than $12,000 and had $167,000 in cash.

Her six opponents in the Democratic primary — Lei Ahu Isa, Howard Kim, Javier Ocasio, Steve Tataii, Sam Puletasi and Lei Sharsh-Davis — either filed no records with the FEC or reported no financial activity.

Same goes for Libertarian Alan J.K. Yim and nonpartisan Calvin Griffin.

But Republican Shirlene Ostrov did raise a little dough: $2,400.

Second quarter reports for U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz, a Democrat, were not posted as of Sunday. When they are, we will report those figures along with that of his opponents.
