State Sen. Wendy Davis (D-TX) reported raising $12.2 million since she jumped into the race for governor of Texas.

That $12 million in the last six months is above the $10 million that Davis was expected to announce and actually more than Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) raised. Abbott, the likely Republican nominee raised $11.5 million. In total
Abbott’s campaign said he had $27 million cash for his gubernatorial bid.

Davis’ campaign believes she must raise over $40 million to beat Abbott.
