(Salt Lake City-AP) -- This fall's race for Salt Lake City mayor is already getting expensive, thought the election is ten months away.

There aren't even any official candidates yet. That paperwork will be filed this summer.

But the candidates-to-be are already raising money. Getting a quick start is Frank Pignanelli. He raised 100-thousand dollars in just two months. Current Mayor Rocky Anderson has raised only 66-thousand dollars in the past year. But the incumbent has money left over from his last race. So his total is still the biggest, with 144-thousand dollars.

A third likely candidate, Dave Spatafore, has raised a little under nine-thousand dollars.

At this point in the previous election, Anderson and his two opponents had raised only 80-thousand dollars put together.
