Play associated audio

D.C. Mayor-elect Vincent Gray says he's raised more than $180,000 so far to cover the costs of his transition and upcoming inauguration.

After winning the primary, Gray made the decision to forgo public money and raise the funds from private donors. Most of the money –- approximately $130,000 -– was contributed by businesses and corporations.

Because there were no existing campaign finance rules to govern the donations, Gray set the contribution limit at $50,000.

Gray's replacement as council chairman, Kwame Brown, has also pledged to raise private money for the transition. He's expected to release his list of contributors when he takes over.
