The latest campaign finance reports show Gov. Mary Fallin has topped more than $3 million in contributions to her re-election campaign and is continuing to distance herself from her opponents in fundraising.

Campaign contribution and expenditure reports due by midnight Tuesday show Fallin raised a little more than $3 million for the reporting period that ended June 9, with more than $1.5 million remaining in cash on hand. Fallin faces two little-funded GOP challengers in next Tuesday's primary election -- Dax Ewbank and Chad Moody.

The Democratic candidate for Governor, state Rep. Joe Dorman of Rush Springs, reported raising more than $386,000 through the same period. Dorman reported having less than $60,000 in his campaign fund at the end of the period. Dorman does not have an opponent in the Democratic primary.

There is an independent who will be on the ballot in November -- Richard Prawdzienski.
