In The Region:

The major party candidates for governor have filed their final campaign fundraising statements for the last six months, and incumbent Republican John Kasich raised $4.5 million to Democratic challenger Ed FitzGerald’s $1.6 million. Kasich has nearly $8 million in the bank, while FitzGerald has $1.4 million. Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler has more.

The wide gap between Kasich and FitzGerald was no secret to Ohio Democratic Party chair Chris Redfern, who said at an Associated Press panel discussion this week that more money was no guarantee of victory. 

“We were outspent with Josh Mandel (in the U.S. Senate race). The president was outspent in Ohio as well, and we were successful. We know we will be outspent by John Kasich.”

Ohio Republican Party chairman Matt Borges said the fundraising totals show Democrats might not be ready for the fall. 
“Maybe they will be, maybe they won’t. And maybe they’ll have to be facing a primary where they will be spending a lot of that money, and maybe they will not.”

Among the 10 major party candidates for the five statewide executive offices, Republicans outraised Democrats in the races for Governor, Secretary of State and Treasurer. But the Democratic challengers for Attorney General and Auditor outpaced the incumbent Republicans, though the Republicans still have more cash on hand.
