Gregg Raised $3.7 Million for Governor Race

In 2015 John Gregg raised $3.7 million for his 2016 gubernatorial campaign. The Northwest Indiana Times reports that "At this point in the 2012 race, Gregg raised just $1.2 million to Pence's $3.7 million, forcing Gregg to spend a lot of time fundraising, instead of campaigning, throughout the election year."

Governor Pence raised $3.5 million in the past six months, more than $5.1 million for the year and has nearly $6.8 million cash on hand. While John Gregg will certainly be better funded than he was in 2012, when he lost to Pence by only 3 percent, he will be facing a very well funded incumbent and will need the ongoing support of Democrats.
