A new campaign finance report shows Republican Gov. Haley Barbour collected another $1.1 million last month and, with $7.7 million cash on hand, is more than halfway to the $13 million he says he might spend in seeking a second term.

Attorney John Arthur Eaves Jr., a Democrat who hopes to challenge Barbour in the general election, has about $1.2 million cash on hand – about the same amount he reported having a month ago. Eaves is still his own largest donor.
