Perry raises $3.5M in late '12; has $6M on-hand

Governor hasn't said if he'll seek fourth term


Texas Gov. Rick Perry raised a bit more than $3.5 million between July and December, pushing his campaign cash-on-hand to more than $6 million.

The Republican took office in December 2000 and is the longest serving governor in state history.

But Perry says he won't announce until this summer whether he will seek a fourth full term.

In the meantime, he has remained a prodigious fundraiser, taking in $3,554,046 from June 30 through December 8, 2012.

Perry's campaign said Tuesday it now has $6,028,635 in cash on-hand.

Attorney General Greg Abbott, also a Republican, is widely rumored to be mulling a run for governor. His campaign reported raising more than $4.1 million between July 1 and Dec. 31.

Abbott now has over an impressive $18 million in cash on-hand.
