Gov. Steve Bullock continues to show his fundraising prowess, collecting nearly $160,000 during the past month in his bid for re-election.
His GOP rival, Greg Gianforte, reports raising about $112,000 during the same period.
Statewide office seekers were required to file their latest campaign finance reports with the state's Commissioner of Political Practices on Friday. The reporting period covers from Feb. 26 thru March 27.
The Democratic governor has more than $1 million in his war chest, while Gianforte reports $363,000 left in the bank.
Each have opponents in their respective primaries, but neither raised any substantial amount.
Bill McChesney, who is running against Bullock, did not raise a single cent.
Meanwhile, Terry Nelson, the other Republican candidate for governor, loaned himself $1,000.
