By Patrick Madden

Donors continue to pour money into this year's hotly-contested D.C. mayor's race. Campaign finance reports were posted overnight.

For the second straight reporting period, city council chairman Vincent Gray outraised Mayor Adrian Fenty, this time, the Gray campaign hauled in $700,000 more than double the amount Fenty raised.

But the mayor still holds a major fundraising advantage; the Fenty campaign has $1.9 million on hand, that's nearly triple what Gray has, as the two candidates prepare for the final stretch of the campaign.

There are also some interesting names on the reports, which combined, are nearly a thousand pages long.

Longtime D.C. power-broker Vernon Jordan donated $250 to Gray, and for Fenty, none other than Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg gave $2,000.
