So far this year, the governor has raised around $9.5 million in the hopes of shaking off a challenge from Democrat Mary Burke. The two were in a dead heat in the most recent Marquette poll.
Burke and fellow Democrat Brett Hulsey had not filed updated reports as of mid-morning.
Burke's latest report showed that she had around $2.5 million in the bank going into July, while Hulsey had $946 on hand.
