INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Big money is continuing to pour in from out of state into the campaign accounts for Indiana’s gubernatorial candidates.

State disclosure reports show that the Republican Governors Association has kicked in $1.75 million for GOP candidate Eric Holcomb this month.

That money is helping close Holcomb’s fundraising gap to Democratic nominee John Gregg.

Gregg’s campaign said Monday it raised $4.5 million since June and ended September with $4.8 million in cash. That compares to the $2.8 million Holcomb had on Sept. 30.

So far in October, Gregg has received $500,000 more from the Democratic Governors Association and more than $400,000 from labor unions.

Gregg has been aided with a total of $1.3 million from the Democratic governors group, while Holcomb has received $5 million from the GOP governors.
