RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Republican Gov. Pat McCrory and potential Democratic 2016 election rival Roy Cooper were about even with campaign cash entering 2015.

Their campaign committees disclosed fundraising totals for the final six months of 2014 on Friday, the deadline for candidates not on last year’s ballot.

The governor reported raising $554,000 and having nearly $1.6 million in his campaign coffers. Cooper is the sitting attorney general. He reported raising $310,000 and had about $100,000 less cash on hand than McCrory.

McCrory campaign spokesman Billy Constangy says the governor raised most of what he collected around early December as he began actively seeking donations. Cooper is planning a gubernatorial run but hasn’t yet called himself a candidate.

Democrat Ken Spaulding of Durham is already running. He reported raising $8,900, with $61,000 on hand.
