Wednesday marked the semi-annual filing deadline for campaign finances, giving the public one of its first glimpses of how 2014 campaigns for statewide office are shaping up. Every committee received more than $1,000 in contributions had to disclose the amount they raised and spent in the first six months of 2013 to the secretary of state.
We compiled a spreadsheet with the reported data for every person seeking statewide office, including the amount each candidate raised during the first six months of the year and the amount of cash on hand as of June 30. Gov. Jerry Brown so far has the biggest war chest, with his total cash on hand topping out at $10,042,186.23.
