COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Incumbent Republicans have outraised Democrats this reporting period, as Ohio’s GOP Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) built on his fundraising lead over Democratic opponent Ed FitzGerald.

Campaign finance reports filed Friday show Kasich raised $1.8 million, more than twice the $835,572 raised by FitzGerald.

The fundraising leaves Kasich with $9.3 million in the bank, compared with $1.9 million for FitzGerald.

Attorney General Mike DeWine raised $770,207 compared with $458,409 by his Democratic opponent David Pepper. DeWine has $2.8 million in the bank compared to Pepper’s $1.4 million.

Treasurer Josh Mandel raised $630,973 for $3 million in the bank compared to $523,341 raised by opponent Connie Pillich for $1.5 million in the bank.

Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO’-sted) also outraised opponent Nina Turner, while Auditor David Yost outraised his opponent, John Carney.
