The six major candidates for governor raised just less than four million dollars for their campaigns during the first six months of the year.

That's according to reports filed with the state Elections Board.

Republican Governor McCallum led the six with $1.6 million raised between Jan. 1 and June 30.

But Attorney General Jim Doyle, a Democrat, had $1.76 million in the bank -- tops for any gubernatorial candidate.

Candidates were required to file fund-raising reports with the state Elections Board this week detailing how much they raised during the first six months of the year.

Doyle, U.S. Representative Tom Barrett, Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk and state Senator Gary George of Milwaukee are running for the Democratic nomination.

Barrett had $1.4 million in the bank, Falk had about $610,000 and George had nearly $35,000.
