Angel Tavaras raised over 400-thousand-dollars for his run for governor in the second quarter of the year. Most of the money raised by Tavaras during the period was from private donors, with around 17-thousand-dollars coming from political action committees. The Tavaras campaign says the Providence mayor spent 445-thousand-dollars in the quarter. He has over one-million-dollars in cash on hand as heading into the Democratic primary stretch run.
Gubernatorial candidate Ken Block has a financial edge over Republican opponent Allan Fung. The filings made by both candidates with the Board of Elections show that Block finished the quarter that ended June 30th with more than a half-million dollars in his campaign account. Fung had $364,000 in his account.
