SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Gov. 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 being 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 would-be Republican rivals.

Two challengers, Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks and former U. S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari, had not yet filed their fundraising and spending reports, which are due by midnight Monday.

Brown reports spending $156,000 so far.

This year's race is expected to be far less costly than the 2010 gubernatorial race, when Brown's campaign spent $36.5 million in his successful bid and the campaign of former eBay CEO Meg Whitman spent $178.5 million.
