Honolulu City Councilman Stanley Chang, who is running in the Democratic primary for Congress, raised $124,346 during the past quarter and has brought in more than $308,000 overall.

His campaign released the quarterly campaign-finance figures on Thursday. The reports are due on Tuesday.

"I am humbled by the continuing demonstration of support for my campaign for Congress," Chang said in a statement  "Over the past three quarters, it has become clear that the people of Hawaii are looking for fresh leadership in Congress.  I am grateful to all of those who have supported me over the last year, and I look forward to continuing to work for our future and quality of life."

The other Democrats competing for urban Honolulu's 1st Congressional District are state Sen. Will Espero, state Rep. K. Mark Takai, Honolulu City Councilman Ikaika Anderson, and activist Kathryn Xian. State Senate President Donna Mercado Kim has also shown interest in the primary.
