It's been said that in politics, you are, where you get your money.

In the race for New Orleans mayor, incumbent Mitch Landrieu had $1.2 million on hand to spend at the end of the last reporting period. His top challenger, former Orleans Civil District Court Judge Michael Bagneris had nearly $220,000 according to his latest campaign finance report.

While Landrieu's campaign war chest dwarfs that of Bagneris, both men have their share of big money donations.

Landrieu's $5,000 donors include Archie Manning and downtown law firms such as Boykin Ehret & Utley, Elkins PLC, John E. Galloway of the Galloway, Johnson law firm and the Law Office Of Bernard L. Charbonnet Jr.

A handful of companies that do work in the public sector also gave Landrieu $5,000 including New Orleans red light and speed camera vendor American Traffic Solutions, Julien Engineering & Consulting and Imre Hegedus & Associated Architects.

Mitch Landrieu also received a $5,000 campaign contribution from his sister Senator Mary Landrieu's campaign committee, the Friends Of Mary Landrieu.

Landrieu's campaign finance report also lists $7,000 in contributions from businessman and race horse owner Louis Roussel. According to the Landrieu campaign, $2,000 was applied to the mayor's previous campaign.

Bagneris's top donors include a number of well known personal injury law firms, Edward J. Womac Jr. & Associates, Gauthier Houghtaling & Williams and The Dugan Law Firm, each with $5,000 contributions.

Bagneris also got a $5,000 donation from United Cab. The cab industry had a major dust up with Mayor Landrieu over a set of sweeping reforms for the taxi cab industry.

Bagneris also received a total of $17,500 from Waltzer Wiygul & Garside Llc., and various members of the Waltzer family.

The Waltzer law firm represents the Wisner Trust, a donation of oil-rich coastal property made to the city and several other beneficiaries nearly 100 years ago. Mayor Landrieu is battling the the Wisner Advisory Committee over who controls how the donation money should be spent.

Actor and New Orleans native Wendell Pierce also gave Bagneris $5,000.

Bagneris's finance report also shows that he loaned his own campaign, $50,000.

NAACP President Danatus King who is also running for mayor, reported $7,160 in contributions. New Orleans comedian Manny "Chevrolet" Bruno reported zero contributions in his bid for mayor.

Here is a partial list of major campaign donors for Landrieu and Bagneris:
