Abbott, Cornyn hold large fundraising advantages

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott says he raised more than $3.1 million last month in his run for Texas governor, while the Democratic front runner raised $912,000.

Abbott reported Monday that his January fundraising now gives him $29.4 million in campaign cash, while Davis said she has $10.2 million.

Texas' primary is March 4, and campaigns were required to update their campaign finance reports Monday.

Also Monday, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn reported raising nearly $1.5 million in the final quarter of last year. He has $6.5 million in cash on-hand for his re-election bid.

That's down from the $6.9 million Cornyn had in campaign cash through September.

But it far outpaces Cornyn's longshot primary challenger, U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman. He reported having only about $48,000 as of Dec. 31.
