HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate has received enough small contributions to qualify for matching funds from the state.

State Sen. David Ige raised $100,000 in qualifying contributions of $100 or less. That means he can get those matching funds.

The money comes from people who agree on their tax forms to let $3 from their taxes go to the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund.

Candidates like Ige who opt in also agree to limit campaign spending.
