The 11 candidates competing for the 5th District seat on the Los Angeles City Council reported Friday they have spent $1.4 million in total, shattering the record for a council race since the Ethics Commission began tracking campaign finances. The previous spending mark for a council race, according to Ethics Commission records going back to 1989, was also in the 5th District, when a field of four candidates spent $1.1 million in the 1995 primary.
