Democratic candidate for governor Jack Hatch has nearly $240,000 in his campaign account, far less than the millions that Republican Gov. Terry Branstad has amassed for his re-election bid.

Hatch - a state lawmaker from Des Moines - filed a campaign finance report with the state Sunday. According to the report, Hatch raised about $300,000 in 2013. He and his wife loaned another $140,000 to the campaign. After expenses, Hatch had almost $240,000 left in cash.

Branstad announced earlier this month that he had $4.1 million on hand for his campaign. He officially declared last week that he would seek an unprecedented sixth term in office.

Hatch is considered the leading Democrat in the race and is trying to present himself as a progressive alternative to Branstad.
