DES MOINES — Gov. Kim Reynolds has announced raising more than $3.7 million last year.

Reynolds, who faces two rivals for the Republican nomination for governor, reported the fundraising haul brings her cash-on-hand total to $4.14 million five months from the June 5 primary election. She had reported $1.1 million cash-on-hand at the beginning of 2017.

The Reynolds campaign said the contributions came from all 99 counties, with three-quarters of them $250 or less. Ninety-five percent were from Iowans.

Reynolds’ report will be filed with the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board later this week.
