Texas Republican Greg Abbott Announces $35.5 Million in Cash on Hand

by Jim Geraghty

Remember this headline from January?

Looks like Republican Greg Abbott will have to get by with a mere $35.59 million cash on hand for the fundraising period ending on June 30th. Of course, that’s the highest cash on hand amount ever reported by a Texas candidate. And the gubernatorial candidates who preceded Abbott — Rick Perry and George W. Bush — were no slouches in the fundraising department. 

In June, media reports in Texas stated Davis had raised “at least $16 million.”

Game off?
