State Sen. David Ige reported raising just $56,200 over the past six months for his Democratic primary for governor and $150,000 overall, which includes money carried over from his state Senate campaign.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie raised more than $533,700 for his re-election campaign over the past six months and $3.8 million overall.

“It's common for the elected official holding the office to have the early advantage of larger donations, but I am confident the residents of Hawaii will elect someone for their character and not the amount of money spent on a campaign,” Ige said in a statement.

"By Election Day, I will have met thousands of you and hope the majority of residents will know my reputation of authenticity and collaboration and that you will hire me with your vote to serve as the people’s governor.”
