The Republican Governors Association significantly outpaced its Democratic counterpart on the fundraising front in the first six months of 2013 — outraising the Democratic Governors Association haul by about $10 million.

The RGA raised about $24 million to the DGA’s $13.4 million, according to documents filed with the Internet Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission.
 
(The DGA raised a further $1.6 million through other committees, like a nonprofit arm and a super PAC, bringing its total to around $15 million. The RGA does not combine its fundraising totals with any other committees, according to a representative.)
 
The fundraising reports come just one week after the National Governors Association summer meeting, at which Democrats laid the groundwork for a campaign based on nationalizing the 36 gubernatorial races on the ballot in 2014. Currently, 30 of the nation’s 50 governors are Republican.
