Davis raises $12M for governor's race; Abbott has $27M

Posted: Updated:

Fort Worth Democrat Wendy Davis says she has raised more than $12 million in her bid to become Texas governor.

The state senator released her fundraising totals on Tuesday, one day before required by law.

Davis has raised about $11 million in the last six months, between her senate account, her gubernatorial account and a political action committee formed with Battleground Texas. That group was formed to boost Democratic chances in Texas.

Her likely Republican opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott, reported raising $11.5 million for the governor's race, for a total of $27 million cash on hand.

Texas is the nation's second most populous and largest state, with 20 media markets. The 2014 campaign is expected to cost each about $40 million.
