JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon has about twice as much money in his campaign account as his likely challenger, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder.

Finance figures released Friday show that both Nixon and Kinder raised a considerable amount of money during the past three months.

Nixon, a Democrat, reported raising almost $1.5 million during the recent quarter, boosting his campaign account to $3.2 million.

Kinder, a Republican, raised a little less than $1 million during the quarter and had nearly $1.7 million in his account.

Kinder has not formally announced his candidacy for governor but is expected to challenge Nixon in the 2012 elections.
