With 60 days to go until the June Republican primary, Gov. Nikki Haley's re-election campaign reported $4.27 million available for her re-election.
Haley's campaign said she'd raised more than $860,000 in the first quarter.
"With the fastest growing economy on the east coast, unemployment at a six-year low, and more South Carolinians working today than ever before, the people of our state have real reason to celebrate," said campaign adviser Tim Pearson.
"The governor is grateful for the generous support of so many across our state, support that means we will have the resources over the months ahead to tell the incredible story of South Carolina's resurgence since 2011."
Thursday was the cut-off for state candidates to report their disclosures covering the first three months of the year.
Haley faces two challengers. First is Greenville lawyer and former judge and lawmaker Tom Ervin, who she'll face in the Republican primary on June 10.
State Sen. Vincent Sheheen, D-Camden, is the lone Democrat running. A year after announcing, Sheheen's campaign reported that it has raised over $2.23 million and has $1.72 million cash on hand. They raised $563,248 in the first quarter of 2014.
"South Carolinians are hungry for new leadership, they believe in Vincent's vision for the future, and they want a leader with his track record of working across the aisle to get results," said Andrew Whalen, Sheheen's campaign manager.
Ervin surprised the GOP establishment by entering the race just one day before the formal deadline closed last month. His initial disclosure showed him loaning his campaign $420,181 to start out.
