Fallin Reports More than $1.2 Million in Campaign Fund
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The latest campaign filing reports show Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has more than $1.2 million in her re-election campaign war chest, even though no other candidates have reported raising money to challenge her.
The campaign finance report filed late Thursday shows Fallin reported raising $342,000 during the three-month period from July 1st to September 30th, with about $1.2 million in cash on hand at the end of the quarter. Fallin didn't formally launch her re-election campaign until after the reporting period ended on October 17th.
Republican State Superintendent Janet Barresi reported raising $48,000 during the period and finished with about $150,000 cash on hand. Her GOP opponent — Joy Hofmeister of Tulsa — reported raising $82,000 during the quarter and finishing with $200,000 in cash on hand.
