SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is reporting that he spent just $270,000 during his primary bid for re-election as he continues to build a financial advantage over Republican challenger Neel Kashkari.

The Democratic governor on Thursday reported raising $5.7 million in the first half of the year. That expands the amount of cash he has on hand to $22.4 million as of June 30.

The latest poll released Wednesday by the Public Policy Institute of California shows Brown with a 19 percentage-point lead over Kashkari.

Kashkari is a former U.S. Treasury official who helped oversee the federal bank bailout during the recession. He faces tough odds against a well-funded incumbent seeking an unprecedented fourth term.

Kashkari has not yet filed his semi-annual financial statement, which is due next week.
