AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Fort Worth Democrat Wendy Davis has raised more than $12 million in her bid to become Texas governor, her campaign said Tuesday.

Davis has raised about $11 million in the last six months, among her Senate account, her gubernatorial account and a political action committee formed with Battleground Texas. That group was formed to boost Democratic chances in Texas.

The campaign said it will report raising funds from 71,843 individual contributors. About 85 percent of the contributions were $50 or less.

Her likely Republican opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott, has not released his latest numbers. But he had raised about $26 million in his last campaign report in July.

The state senator released her fundraising totals one day before required by law.
