CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has raised another $1.2 million toward his re-election bid.
The Democratic incumbent attracted most of that from a series of fundraising events between May 21 and last weekend.
The haul gave Tomblin more than twice the funds on hand as Republican Bill Maloney. Tomblin reported a $618,000 campaign balance to Maloney's $264,000.
Tomblin's GOP opponent raised nearly $470,000 during the reporting period. But Maloney also loaned his campaign $250,000.
A Morgantown business owner, Maloney largely self-financed his run for governor last year. Tomblin narrowly won that special election for an unexpired term.
The office is now up for a full, four year term. The candidates will file one more round of reports before the November election.
