Gov. Sean Parnell raised more than $285,000 during the latest reporting period, which runs from February until July. That number includes $100,000 that was given to Parnell from the state Republican Party. In total, the campaign has raised $693,295 since it’s inception in May 2013 and has about $450,000 cash on hand.
“As we travel the state, Sandy and I are humbled by the strong and deep support we see,” Parnell said in a release. “We are especially grateful to all our volunteers, contributors and event hosts. Together, we will continue to build Alaska and ensure more freedom and opportunity for all Alaskans.”
I’ll update when I get the numbers of the other two main candidates in the race: Democrat Byron Mallott and independent Bill Walker.
As of 4 p.m. on Monday, the website of the Alaska Public Offices Commission was down, as it tends to be during high traffic times.
