BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - U.S. Sen. David Vitter continues to draw hefty sums for his campaign to be Louisiana’s next governor. His campaign said Monday the Republican senator brought in $1.1 million so far this year, boosting his fundraising total to $5.2 million. The campaign said it has $4.2 million in the bank for the Oct. 24 election.

Vitter was the first of four major gubernatorial candidates to announce figures from the fundraising period that ended last week.

A political action committee also has raised millions to support Vitter. The Fund for Louisiana’s Future said it has $3.5 million cash on hand.

Other candidates include: Republican Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle, Republican Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne and Democratic state Rep. John Bel Edwards.

Fundraising reports are due to the state ethics office April 27.
