April 8, 2019 GMT

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Montana Attorney General Tim Fox has raised more than $200,000 since the Republican announced his candidacy for governor.

Montana Public Radio reports the only other candidate who has reported raising money in the 2020 race is Republican Secretary of State Corey Stapleton, who has raised $65,000 since last year.

State Sen. Al Olszewski announced his run for governor after the campaign finance reporting deadline for the first three months of 2019.

No Democrat has announced a run yet. Incumbent Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock can’t run again due to term limits.


Fox’s deputy, Republican Jon Bennion, has raised more than $70,000 in his run for attorney general.

Democrat Kim Dudik also is running for attorney general and has raised a little more than $5,000.
