Placeholder Image
ATLANTA (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Roy Barnes says he's raised more than $900,000 in the first three months of the year and has a whopping $2.8 million in the bank.

That leads the other candidates who've reported so far.

Among Republicans, Eric Johnson pulled in more than $700,000 in the last quarter and has about $1.7 million on hand. Karen Handel raised nearly $400,000 in the first quarter and has almost $600,000 in the bank. Despite being barred from collecting donations since the Jan. 11 start of the legislative session, state insurance commissioner John Oxendine raised about $81,000 this quarter and has a little more than $2 million on hand.

Political newcomer Ray Boyd is throwing $2 million of his own money into winning the Republican nomination.
