The numbers have started to trickle out from the Perdue campaign.
Last time he ran for governor, Sonny Perdue was considered a long shot and was outspent 6-1 but still managed to knock off a sitting governor. Now the incumbent, he won’t have the same money problems when he seeks re-election next year.
His political team will disclose on Friday that it has raised just over $7 million for the 2006 race, with 16 months left before the general election to raise more.
As of June 30, Perdue was sitting on a bankroll in excess of $6.5 million.
