Beebe Widens Fundraising Gap in Governor's Race

MAY 16, 2006 - Posted at 8:06 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The latest campaign-finance reports show that

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Beebe's campaign has raised

more than twice the money taken in by his Republican opponent, Asa

Hutchinson.

Beebe's latest report, filed yesterday with the secretary of

state's office, shows his campaign raised nearly 329-thousand

dollars last month. That brings his total contributions to

three-and-a-half (m) million dollars with months to go until the

general election.

Beebe, the state's attorney general, ended the month with

two-point-four (m) million dollars in cash on hand after spending

173-thousand, 556 dollars last month. Hutchinson raised

203-thousand, 137 dollars, bringing his total contributions to

one-point-seven (m) million dollars. He ended the month with

909-thousand, 470 dollars in cash on hand.

Hutchinson spokesman David Kinkade said Hutchinson isn't

concerned about the fundraising gap between the two candidates.

Kinkade said a campaign needs to have enough to get its message out

and be effective campaign, and the Hutchinson campaign has more

than enough to do that.
