Brown spends little; has nearly $24 million left

Posted: Updated:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is reporting that he has nearly $24 million for his re-election campaign after spending very little so far this year.

In a report filed Monday with the secretary of state's office, the Democratic governor says he has $23.6 million in the bank and has spent just $402,000 this year.

That included about $36,000 in returned contributions between July 1 and Sept. 30. Brown spokesman Dan Newman did not immediately return a call seeking details about the returned money.

Brown also reported having $6.6 million in a ballot measure committee he controls to support Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion water bond, and Proposition 2, which would strengthen California's rainy day fund.

Brown's November opponent, Neel Kashkari, has until midnight Monday to report his spending and fundraising.
