Who's got the money? Ross and Hutchinson both have plenty

Posted By on Tue, Jul 15, 2014 at 2:39 PM

I'm less interested in political money, after a certain point, than policy. I've said all along that there'll be no shortage of TV ad money on either side in the race for governor.

But, for the record, Democrat Mike Ross reports out-raising Republican Asa Hutchinson in the most recent month, about $296,000 to $250,000, according to campaign statements. Ross has $1.275 million on hand and Hutchinson about $1 million, the campaigns said. Ross poured about $500,000 into TV ad and production costs in June.
