Tomblin Far Outraises Maloney in West Virginia

Democratic West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin easily outraised his Republican opponent, businessman, Bill Maloney, in the last reporting period. Tomblin brought in more than $1.2 million while Maloney took in nearly $469,000 and loaned the campaign another $250,000 of his personal money.

The governor ended the period, which ran from May 21 to Sept. 23, with $618,000 in the bank. Maloney had about $264,000 on hand. However, Maloney is personally wealthy and will likely continue to self-fund his bid as needed, as he did when the two candidates first faced off last year.

While Tomblin is favored to win the gubernatorial race, the Republican Governor's Association has also started spending in the race, and has launched two television advertisements so far targeting the Democrat.
