The governor’s race towers above all others when it comes to raising and spending money this election season. Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and challenger Beto O’Rourke (D) accounted for a staggering 70% of all contributions received and 76% of all expenditures made by statewide and legislative candidates facing general election opposition. Adding Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) and his challenger Mike Collier (D) to those totals brings them to 75% and 88%, respectively.

Legislative candidates facing opposition accounted for less than $1 out of every $6 raised and $1 out of every $20 spent between July 1 and September 29.
