July 23, 2014 01:20 GMT
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- Democratic candidate Mike Michaud has more than $1 million left in his campaign war chest as he seeks to unseat Republican Gov. Paul LePage this November.
Michaud reported Tuesday that he raised about $355,000, including in-kind contributions, in the period between May 28 and July 15. LePage's campaign raised $234,000 over that same period. The governor has about $915,000 cash left and has raised roughly $1.3 million since the beginning of his campaign.
Michaud has raised nearly $2 million total.
Independent candidate Eliot Cutler raised about $192,000 in the latest filing period. Cutler also donated about $580,000 to his own campaign. He has raised more than $2 million so far in the race, including nearly $1 million of his own money.
