Big money keeps pouring into Indiana gubernatorial campaign

Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS -- Big money is continuing to pour in from out of state into the campaign accounts for Indiana’s gubernatorial candidates.

State disclosure reports show the Republican Governors Association has kicked in $1.75 million for GOP candidate Eric Holcomb this month.

That money is helping close Holcomb’s fundraising gap to Democratic nominee John Gregg.

Gregg’s campaign said Monday it raised $4.5 million since June and ended September with $4.8 million in cash. That compares to the $2.8 million Holcomb had on Sept. 30.

So far in October, Gregg has received $500,000 more from the Democratic Governors Association and more than $400,000 from labor unions.

Gregg has been aided with a total of $1.3 million from the Democratic governors group, while Holcomb has received $5 million from the GOP governors.
