Pence Has Fundraising Lead In Indiana Governor’s Race

From the Associated Press:

Republican Rep. Mike Pence is dominating the money race for the Indiana governor’s office.

Campaign finance numbers released Wednesday show Pence raised $5 million last year and has $3.7 million in the bank. Democrat and former Indiana House Speaker John Gregg has raised $1.7 million so far and banked $1.2 million.

Pence’s strong fundraising puts him well ahead of a pack of candidates running to replace Gov. Mitch Daniels in November. Daniels is term-limited against running for re-election.

Fishers businessman Jim Wallace, a Republican, said he raised more $1 million last year and has $800,000 in the bank. Almost all of that came from money he loaned his campaign.

Libertarian candidate and “Survivor” star Rupert Boneham’s campaign manager said he raised $16,000 and has more than $4,000 in the bank.
