Andrew White Reports $1.1 Million Haul in Bid to Unseat Abbott

Andrew White, a Democrat running for governor, has reported a campaign haul of $1.1 million heading into the last month before the regular Democratic primary election.

In a new report filed, White reported raising $1.1 million that included a $1 million loan to his own campaign. White, a Houston businessman and son of late Governor Mark White, pulled in an extra $139,000 in contributions to round out the reporting period.

Little is known yet on what White's Democratic opponents pulled in during the most recent period. Andrew White's campaign led the Democratic fundraising pack during the last period with $200,000, outpacing ex-Dallas sheriff Lupe Valdez who raised about $46,000.

Governor Greg Abbott, the Republican incumbent, is holding a sum of about $43 million going into his primary against little known challengers SECEDE Kilgore and Barbara Krueger.

The primary will be held on March 6th.
