Finances of Ohio's Democratic statewide candidates start to catch up
But given earlier GOP advantages, they continue to have far less cash on hand; and Gov. Kasich's advantage over Ed FitzGerald grew even larger

In The Region:

Campaign finance reports filed today show Gov. John Kasich continues to have a big edge over his likely November challenger, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald.  WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the pictures the numbers paint for statewide races.

The reports had to be filed for money that state candidates raised and spent from January through last week. And all five Republicans trying to hold onto their statewide non-judicial offices continue to have the monetary edge. 

Kasich took in about $2.1 million. He spent about $850,000 of that. But given what he already had in the bank, he could not raise another dime and he’d still have $8.5 million  to spend between now and election day. FitzGerald, on the other hand, raised just about $660,000, which brings him to about $1.5 million in the bank.

Some Democrats outraised the Republicans during the first four months of this year. John Patrick Carney more than doubled what Auditor David Yost raised. David Pepper did nearly as well for his race against Attorney General Mike Dewine. And Nina Turner took in more than Secretary of State Jon Husted – the man she’s trying to unseat.

In fact, other than Kasich, only State Treasurer Josh Mandel – a prolific fundraiser – pulled in more money so far this year than his Democratic challenger, Connie Pillich. But even that was close. 

Still, given their advantage in earlier fundraising, all five of the Republicans have a lot more money in the bank heading into the six-month battle before November’s election.
