AUGUSTA, Maine — Democratic governor hopeful Mike Michaud raised about $355,000 in the latest filing period.
Campaign finance reports filed Tuesday show that Michaud's campaign has more than $1 million left in its war chest as it seeks to unseat Republican Gov. Paul LePage in November. Michaud has raised nearly $2 million to date.
On Tuesday evening, LePage and independent candidate Eliot Cutler had not yet filed reports detailing contributions and expenditures between May 28 and July 15. They are due at midnight.
In the short period before the June 10 primary, LePage outpaced his opponents by raising more than $180,000. At the end of that filing period in May, Michaud had the most cash left at $860,000.
LePage's campaign had a cash balance of $758,000 and Cutler had roughly $39,000 in May.
