Del. Patrick Hope (D-Arlington) ended the first quarter with $120,853 in his campaign account, while challenger Matt Rogers had $13,180, according to filings with the Virginia Department of Elections.

Hope and Rogers are vying in the 47th District, which includes much of central Arlington.

During the first quarter, Hope’s campaign took in contributions of $43,399, while Rogers garnered $18,526.

In the 49th District, Del. Alfonso Lopez ended the quarter with $131,117 on hand compared to $30,990 for educator Karishma Mehta.

For the quarter, Lopez garnered $82,821 in contributions compared to $51,655 for Mehta, according to state figures.

Virginia law puts no caps on campaign contributions in state races, but candidates are required to disclose the source of all contributions of $100 or more.
