Gov. Haley Barbour has raised $7.69 million for his re-election campaign, far outpacing the Democratic contender whose biggest donor has been himself.
Democratic candidate John Arthur Eaves Jr., a wealthy attorney, has pumped more than $1.3 million of his own money into his effort to unseat Barbour. The rest of Eaves’ money came in several dozen contributions primarily from other attorneys. Eaves has $1.1 million cash on hand.
