The latest fundraising numbers in Indiana’s gubernatorial race show Republican Mike Pence with an edge over Democrat John Gregg.
According to the Pence campaign, the Republican candidate raised more than $2.9 million in the third quarter. Gregg’s campaign said the Democratic candidate brought in more than $1 million during the same span.
"Over the past few months, Mike's positive, issues-based vision and Roadmap to make Indiana the state that works have drawn thousands of Hoosiers to invest time, talent and resources," said Kyle Robertson, campaign manager. "We are grateful to have the continued outpouring of support from Hoosiers in all corners of the state as we enter the final weeks of the campaign."
Gregg has been running commercials for the last three months. His campaign said more than 97 percent of his individual contributions came from Indiana.
"I continue to be honored and humbled by the support that Hoosiers have given my campaign," Gregg said. "I have taken my message of creating jobs, strengthening education and bi-partisan cooperation to every corner of the state, and today's report shows that the message is resonating with voters throughout Indiana."
The gubernatorial candidates will hold another debate Wednesday night in South Bend.
