Democratic Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley is using her re-election campaign that's not subject to state contribution limits to raise money for her 2018 gubernatorial bid.

A notice on Whaley's campaign website informing potential donors the mayoral fund is able to accept unlimited contributions was taken down Thursday after the campaign was asked about it by the Associated Press. A campaign spokesperson says they plan to remedy the potentially confusing situation voluntarily, limiting donations from individuals and political action committees to the annual state cap of 12 thousand dollars. It's the only fund Whaley can operate until the mayoral race concludes this fall.
