Cash continues to roll in for three Connecticut gubernatorial candidates, with Republican Gov. John G. Rowland bringing in more than two Democratic challengers combined.
In a three-month period that ended April 4, Sen. Majority Leader George Jepsen raised more and spent more than his main rival for the Democratic nomination, former state Comptroller Bill Curry.
Rowland raised and spent almost twice as much as the two Democrats during the same three months.
According to campaign finance reports filed last week, Rowland’s campaign pulled in $744,156 from Jan. 4 to April 4. Rowland’s campaign spent $230,268 during the first three months of the year.
Jepsen emerged as the top Democrat fund-raiser, collecting $219,928 in contributions. During the same period, Jepsen’s campaign spent $134,532.
Curry’s campaign collected $203,507 and showed $121,138 in expenditures, according to the campaign finance report.
