Republican Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb raised $620,000 last quarter and has the most cash on hand of any candidate, at $2.4 million. Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, also a Republican, raised $592,000 last quarter, while Tulsa attorney Gary Richardson raised $25,000 and loaned his campaign $825,000.
On the Democratic side, former Attorney General Drew Edmondson raised $243,000 last quarter, while state Rep. Scott Inman, who abruptly dropped out of the race last week, raised nearly $70,000.
