$2 million Campaign Fund Built by Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb

Days after Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb discussed energy and his campaign for Governor with OK Energy Today, it’s been reported his campaign fund totals nearly $2 million.

The Tulsa World reports Lamb has so much money, he has far more than any of the 11 other candidates.  And the primaries are more than 11 months away, giving the Republican hopeful more time to raise more money.

The nearly $2 million was reflected in a quarterly filing period that ended June 30 and was on file with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission. Lamb transferred more than $1 million into the campaign and spent $102,400.62 so far. His total received was $2,086,399 and minus the expenditures, he has $1,983,998.68 left.

But it will be a long, long haul for the other candidates, Democrats, Libertarians and Republicans alike.

For example, former US Attorney Gary Richardson reports $5,757 in his campaign fund. Gary Jones, the State Auditor showed $22,311 as of the end of June. Drew Edmondson, the former Democratic Attorney General showed $256,506 in his fund.

Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett shows $178,000 in his fund for the same period.
