HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Corbett's campaign manager is telling a newspaper the governor raised $6.8 million last year and has $7.5 million in cash for this year's re-election effort.
Campaign manager Mike Barley revealed the latest figures on Wednesday to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1eBDSTI ) ahead of a public disclosure deadline next week.
At least eight Democrats are seeking the nomination to take on the Republican incumbent in November.
Among them, state Treasurer Rob McCord says he raised $6.6 million last year, U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz says she collected $6.5 million and former state Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf says he took in $13.3 million.
The paper says Corbett raised about $25 million during his successful 2010 campaign.
