Governor raises $2M for re-election
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie has raised more than $2 million total for his re-election bid in 2014.
The Democrat’s latest campaign spending report shows he has about $1.4 million in cash on hand.
The governor raised just under $300,000 between July and December last year.
Abercrombie’s donors included numerous members of Hawaii’s business and legal communities, including the president of The Gas Company and officials from First Hawaiian Bank and Bank of Hawaii.
The governor also received thousands of dollars from mainland organizations, including airline and technology companies.
Oracle Corp. CEO Lawrence Ellison gave Abercrombie $5,000.
Abercrombie became governor of Hawaii in 2010. He won the election after receiving about $4.5 million in campaign contributions.
