Parnell reports raising more than $285K
Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell raised more than $285,000 during the latest reporting period, including $100,000 from the state Republican party.
Parnell reported having close to $450,000 on hand, with about one month to go before the primary. The other Republicans running are Russ Millette and Brad Snowden.
Millette was elected state GOP chairman during a boisterous 2012 election but was ousted by party leaders before taking over.
The report, filed with the Alaska Public Offices Commission, runs from Feb. 2 through July 18.
While the party generally does not get involved in primaries, late last year it endorsed Parnell for re-election, after the Democrats endorsed Byron Mallott as their pick.
