All three will meet in the Feb. 20 primary with the two highest vote-getters advancing to the April general election.

Dallet had nearly $389,000 cash on hand compared with $107,000 for Burns and $77,000 for Screnock.

Dallet has tried to position herself as the most nonpartisan of the three candidates in the officially nonpartisan race. Burns has been openly courting liberals. Screnock has been targeting conservative voters.
