Allen County Prosecutor Karen Richards, running for re-election, has a sizable advantage in funds over challenger Michael Loomis as the May 6 primary approaches, according to filed campaign reports.The reports, filed with the Allen County Election Board, show that Richards had more than $40,500 on hand as of Monday's filing date, while Loomis had $420 as of April 18. This came as a result of Richards' campaign seeing donations of $38,475 over the reporting period from Jan. 1 through April 11, while Loomis raised a bit more than $2,215.

The two candidates' reported spending is far closer, however, with Richards' campaign reporting that it spent $1,798 and Loomis' campaign reporting it spent just more than $1,795.

Richards' campaign was given a significant boost in funds by R. Bruce Dye, who contributed $10,000 in February, and Richard K. Byers Jr., who contributed that same amount in early April, according to the report. Numerous attorneys from the prosecutor's office also contributed to Richards' campaign, among others.

Loomis' campaign had a $990 donation by Dennis S. Guillaume in February, among others.
