Politicians eyeing City Hall in 2013 raised some serious campaign cash in the last six months, according to finance reports filed Tuesday.

While there are only a handful of people who've formally announced plans to run for mayor, others potentially interested in the job have been building up their war chests.

One pol currently outpacing everyone else -- Public Advocate Bill de Blasio -- told supporters in an e-mail Tuesday his campaign filed "our biggest numbers ever," about $1 million.
