The challenger in the race for Vermont attorney general has outraised and outspent the incumbent. But both candidates have about the same amount left to spend in the last two weeks of the campaign.
T.J. Donovan has raised $166,971 in his campaign for the Democratic nomination. He's spent $112,779 and Donovan has $54,192 in the bank.
Incumbent Bill Sorrell has raised $115,160 and spent $57,503-- both marks about $50,000 less than Donovan. Sorrell's filing shows he has $57,657 cash on hand.
Sorrell is seeking an eighth full term in office and facing his stiffest challenge yet from a member of his own party. Voters will make a choice in the Democrat primary Aug. 28.
In the race for governor, Republican challenger Randy Brock has raised $584,923, but it's important to note that $300,000 of that is his own money. So far, Brock has spent $347,784 and has $237,139 left in the bank.
The campaign for Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont, did not provide exact numbers, but reported raising over $836,000 to date from nearly 2,200 donors. And said the campaign has about $770,000 on hand.
