California's 2018 race for governor may still be in its infancy, but the competition for campaign donations is well underway.
Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, who launched his bid in January 2015, on Tuesday announced he raised $2.7 million during the second half of 2016. Newsom also reported having $11.5 million cash on hand, which includes money socked away in his old campaign account for lieutenant governor.
