Davis Money Haul Less Than Claimed

A day before fundraising reports were made public in the Texas governor's race, the campaign of Wendy Davis (D) boasted that she had outraised Greg Abbott (R) over the last few months and hauled in $13.1 million for their fall battle, the Texas Tribune reports.

However, the actual reports told a different story.

"The $11.2 million Davis claims she raised over the latest period -- an amount she said was larger than the $11.1 million Abbott raised -- contains over half a million dollars in non-cash 'in-kind' donations and counts contributions that could benefit other Democratic candidates."
