Pence Lags Gregg In First Quarter Campaign Fundraising

INDIANAPOLIS - Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg outraised incumbent Republican Gov. Mike Pence in the first quarter of 2016. 

Gregg's largest donations came from Christel Dehaan, an Indianapolis philanthropist and typically a GOP supporter; and Fred Eychaner, a major Democratic donor from Chicago.

Gregg campaign donors contributed $1.8 million, compared to $1.5 million raised by the Pence campaign. Without a last-minute donation from the Republican Governors Association, Gregg would have out-raised Pence by a nearly two-to-one margin.

Pence still has more cash on hand than his challenger -- more than $7.5 million compared to Gregg's $5 million.

The Gregg campaign says the fundraising numbers are a sign of the public’s dissatisfaction with the governor.  The Pence team says it will have the resources necessary to execute its campaign.
