CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has attracted more than $1 million in the opening months of his re-election bid.

The Democrat was among several candidates for Supreme Court, other statewide offices and the Legislature who filed campaign finance reports by Friday's deadline.

Tomblin's campaign reported a $876,000 balance after spending $168,000.

GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill Maloney raised $305,000 during the filing period. Maloney narrowly lost to Tomblin during last year's special general election.

Maloney has nearly $267,000 left on hand heading toward the May primary. He faces fellow Republican Ralph William Clark, who reported loaning his campaign $5,000. He spent all but $263 of that.

Arne Moltis is challenging Tomblin in the Democratic primary.
