State candidates with primary opponents were required to file 30-day-out campaign finance reports today. These reports cover contributions received and expenditures made during the first 25 days of 2018. Most of these reports will not be available until tomorrow, but here are some highlights from what we have seen so far:

  • Greg Abbott (R) raised $1.1M and reported having $43.3M on hand. It is the smallest amount he has raised in any reporting period since January 2011, but it still amounts to roughly $44K per day. On the Democratic side, Andrew White loaned his campaign $1M and raised around $140K, and Lupe Valdez raised just under $50K, according to their campaigns.
  • SD17: Sen. Joan Huffman (R-Houston) raised $83K and has just under $500K on hand.
