Kitzhaber leads governor's race funding, barely

John Kitzhaber holds a large fundraising lead over rival Democrat Bill Bradbury in the 2010 Oregon governor’s race.

New state campaign finance reports showed that as of today, Kitzhaber’s fundraising of $389,670 also puts him slightly ahead of Republican contender Chris Dudley.

Bradbury, the former Oregon secretary of state, reported raising $178,803 for his battle with Kitzhaber for the Democratic nomination.

On the Republican side, Dudley’s fundraising of $388,387 puts him well ahead of Allen Alley, who’s collected $248,505.

Two other GOP contenders — John Lim and Bill Sizemore — have not reported any campaign fundraising so far.
