LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s campaign for governor reports it’s raised nearly $191,000 over the past three months. Rutledge’s campaign on Friday said the latest contributions brought her total fundraising haul to more than $1.6 million since she announced her candidacy last year.

Rutledge is lagging behind fellow Republican rival and former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who reported raising $2.1 million during the quarter. The two are running to succeed Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who is barred by term limits from seeking reelection. Rutledge’s campaign reported having more than $1 million cash on hand.
