ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp says his main campaign committee raised more than $7.4 million in the seven months ending Jan. 31.

That gives him $12.7 million in cash as the Republican seeks reelection this year.

None of Kemp’s Republican primary rivals has announced fundraising totals yet. Democrat Stacey Abrams also has not yet announced how much she raised. Kemp is the latest Georgia candidate to report raising a large sum this election cycle.

Last week, Democratic U.S. Sen. Raphael Warnock said he raised $9.8 million in the last three months of 2021, while Republican challenger Herschel Walker said donors gave him $5.4 million.
