Newport Beach Mayor Marshall “Duffy” Duffield collected about $78,000 in donations for his City Council reelection bid between July 1 and Sept. 22, nearly as much as all the other candidates combined, according to their latest campaign finance reports.

With the summer surge, Duffield, one of four incumbents running for a second term, also led all hopefuls in overall fundraising for the year ($104,548) and cash on hand ($87,161) with about a month left until Election Day on Nov. 6.
