HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The first reports showing who's giving money — and how much — to prospective candidates for governor in Pennsylvania are trickling into the state elections bureau ahead of the first deadline.
Friday's deadline applies to Gov. Tom Corbett and the eight Democrats who want the party's nomination to challenge him in the November election.
Corbett, a Republican, and several Democrats had yet to release their reports for 2013.
Democrat Katie McGinty reported raising nearly $2.4 million. That includes $100,000 each from two western Pennsylvania businessmen, coal company owner Raymond Bologna and equipment firm owner Douglas Farnham, and New York insurance executive Brian Duperreault.
She also gave her campaign $235,000, and loaned it $235,000.
Max Myers reporting raising about $30,000 while another relatively unknown candidate, Jo Ellen Litz, reported raising $4,000.
