UPDATE: Hatch Releases Funds Report

DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The race for Iowa governor is in full swing and we're now learning that there is one pretty startling disadvantage for one of the candidates.
New numbers released Monday show Democratic candidate for governor, State Senator Jack Hatch has raised $183,000 dollars; compare that to Governor Branstad's 4 million dollar war chest, and the numbers show, the governor has more than twenty times the funds.
That puts hatch at a disadvantage when it comes to things like commercial air time and travel expenses.
The most recent NBC Marist poll shows the governor ahead, at 53%and hatch at 38%. 


DES MOINES, IA (AP) - Democrat Jack Hatch has just $183,000 in the bank for his campaign for governor, putting him at an extreme disadvantage against Republican Gov. Terry Branstad, who has amassed $4 million.

According to a report filed with the state Monday, Hatch raised nearly $270,000 during the latest fundraising period, which ended July 14. After expenses, he was left with $183,000 in cash.

Reports were due to the state Monday. Branstad announced last week that he had raised over $700,000 during the most recent state fundraising period and has more than $4 million on hand.

Branstad is running for an unprecedented sixth term.
