Fundraising in the race for Oregon governor has set a new record.

Candidates Chris Dudley and John Kitzhaber have raised a combined $15.4 million — more money than their predecessors ever did in Oregon's campaigns for governor.

The Register-Guard reported that Dudley is now the all-time top campaign fundraiser in an Oregon governor's race, with $9.1 million.

Kitzhaber's $6.3 million is more than any Democratic nominee has raised for the state's top office.
