Republican Abbott reports raising $3.1M in January

Updated: Monday, February 3 2014, 03:21 PM CST

Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott says he raised more than $3.1 million last month in his run for Texas governor.

Abbott reported Monday that his January fundraising haul now gives him $29.4 million in total campaign cash. It's a warchest that Abbott began stockpiling years ago while quietly building an anticipated run to replace Gov. Rick Perry.

That has given Abbott a commanding fundraising lead over Democrat Wendy Davis. The Fort Worth state senator last month reported raising $12.2 million since she catapulted to national stardom last summer with a nearly 13-hour filibuster over abortion restrictions.

The primary is March 4.
