Columbia's mayoral race is an expensive one.Candidates are required to file their fundraising totals with the Missouri Ethics Commission.Here's how they break down:Retired obstetrician Bob McDavid has collected more than $56,000 in donations, largely in $250 donations from other physicians.Councilman Jerry Wade raised almost $30,000 from a long list of contributors giving smaller amounts each. Sid Sullivan raised over $6,000.Paul Love collected just $1,551 for this non-paid position and he gave his campaign a thousand of it.Sal Nuccio and Sean O'Day did not file a report indicating they each raised less than $500.
