The three men widely considered the top candidates for mayor of Honolulu each held fundraisers over the past two weeks.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell asked for suggested contributions of $50 on July 7 at 1115 Bethel Street in Chinatown.

Former Mayor Peter Carlisle asked for donations of $30 at Ferguson’s Pub downtown that same night.

And former U.S. Rep. Charles Djou asked for donations of $1,000 on June 29 at Ruth’s Chris at Waterfront Plaza.

None of the eight other candidates running for the nonpartisan seat of mayor has scheduled any fundraisers so far this year — at least, ones requiring notification to the state Campaign Spending Commission.

Thursday at 11:59 p.m. is the deadline for candidates running in the primary to file reports with the commission, showing how much they have raised and spent, where the money came from and where it went.

The filing period covers the first six months of the year.
