Governor Mike Pence heads into the year of his reelection bid with a sizeable fundraising advantage over his Democratic challenger.
Likely Democratic nominee John Gregg actually outraised Pence in the first half of 2015 and finished the year with $3.7 million in contributions, and $3.5 million cash on hand.
But the Republican incumbent raised about $3.5 million in the last six months…nearly as much as Gregg raised in all of 2015. Pence ended the year dwarfing the Democrat’s numbers: nearly $7 million cash on hand after bringing in about $5 million over the year.
The complete details of the candidates’ 2015 fundraising reports – including a list of all donors – will be available soon; the reports are due January 20th.
