Though it's still early in the 2014 campaign season, major donors have wasted no time throwing their cash behind candidates — including some (hello, Wendy Davis) who haven't even officially jumped into statewide races. Use our interactive to check out the top contributors in the first half of 2013 to candidates running for or considering a shot at governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, land commissioner, agriculture commissioner and comptroller.
Not including comptroller hopeful Harvey Hilderbran — who transferred $278,000 from his state representative campaign account — the single-biggest contribution received among these candidates belongs to Brandon Creighton, who received a $175,000 donation in his bid for agriculture commissioner.
