Pence dominating money race for Indiana governor

January 18, 2012

Republican Rep. Mike Pence is dominating the money race for the Indiana governor's office.

Campaign finance numbers released Wednesday show Pence raised $5 million last year and has $3.7 million in the bank. Former Democratic Indiana House Speaker John Gregg has raised $1.7 million so far and banked $1.2 million.

Pence's strong fundraising puts him well ahead of a pack of candidates running to replace Gov. Mitch Daniels in November. Daniels is term-limited against running for re-election.

Fishers businessman Jim Wallace said he raised more $1 million last year and has $800,000 in the bank. Almost all of that came from money he has lent his campaign.

Libertarian candidate and "Survivor" star Rupert Boneham's campaign manager said he raised $16,000 and has more than $4,000 in the bank.
