Fundraising in Governor's race no contest
The Republican challenger hoping to unseat Democratic Gov. Jack Markell has raised less than 10 percent of the money raised by Markell this year in his bid for re-election.
GOP contender Jeff Cragg's campaign finance report shows that he has raised a little more than $60,000 this year, with more than $26,000 of that total, or almost half, coming from Cragg himself. That's a fraction of the more than $741,000 raised by Markell.
Cragg reported spending about $44,000, or roughly five-percent of the $865,000 spent this year by Markell.
Markell's spending total includes more than $300,000 paid to a Philadelphia-based firm for political ads that began airing this week.
