Governor Jerry Brown is reporting that he has raised nearly $20 million for his re-election campaign, nearly eight months before the November election.

In a quarterly campaign finance report filed Monday, the Democratic governor's campaign says it has $19.7 million in the bank, far surpassing the fundraising totals of any of his Republican rivals.

One of Brown's challengers, former U. S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari, has announced that he has raised $1.3 million over his two months of campaigning.

The other challenger, Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks, had until midnight last night to filed his report.
