Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White raised more campaign cash than any other candidate in the governor's race, according to the latest ethics reports.
The former Houston mayor pulled in slightly more than Republican Rick Perry and nearly tripled the total reported by the GOP governor's rival in the March 2 primary, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. White bested his own rival, Farouk Shami, who is relying largely on his personal fortune to campaign in the Democratic primary. Debra Medina, who received some momentum after the first GOP debate, collected money at a significant rate for a grassroots campaign.
|Candidate||Contributions||Expenditures||Cash on Hand|
|Kay Bailey Hutchison||$269,940||$3,397,549||$10,011,341|
