Democrats have outraised incumbent Republicans in two statewide races this period, as Ohio's GOP Gov. John Kasich built on his fundraising lead over Democratic opponent Ed FitzGerald.
Democrat Nina Turner had a strong showing against Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO'-sted), outraising him by $108,000. Husted reports almost $2.4 million on hand to Turner's $494,000.
Kasich added $1.5 million to his coffers and has now banked $8.5 million, compared with $1.5 million for his likely Democratic opponent, FitzGerald. FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County executive, faces a challenge from Dayton activist Larry Ealy May 6.
