The first campaign finance reports for next year's race are due Wednesday.

There are five declared candidates for mayor, all Democrats: D.C. Council members Muriel Bowser, Jack Evans and Tommy Wells; former State Department official Reta Lewis; and businessman Christian Carter. The primary is April 1, much earlier than it has been in the past.
