Governor

Jack Markell

Roughly $1 million, or about 52 percent of the $1.9 million raised for Markell's governor’s campaign since January 2011, came from outside the state.[14] According to his campaign reports, in 2011 and 2012 about $964,500, or less than half of the money raised by Markell’s campaign, came from Delaware contributors, including $75,000 from the state Democratic Party.[14]

More than 18 percent, or $368,300 – came from more than 560 donors in Pennsylvania, with nearly $112,000 coming from Maryland and $257,750, roughly 13 percent, from donors in New York and New Jersey.[14] Markell's campaign finance reports also show money for his campaign coming from Alabama, Maine, Colorado, Montana, and one donor from Japan.[14]

Markell’s fundraising for this campaign differs from his 2008 race, when reportedly 60 percent of the more than $4 million he raised came from businesses and individual donors in Delaware.[14]

Jeff Cragg

Cragg raised $60,000 in his campaign, which included $26,250 from himself.[14]
