HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial nominee Tom Corbett's campaign has three times as much money in the bank as his Democratic foe, Dan Onorato. According to campaign finance reports filed Thursday, Onorato had $1.1 million on hand as of June 7, while Corbett had $3.4 million.

Onorato won a four-way race for the Democratic nomination last month, while Corbett easily beat back a single opponent.

Onorato, the Allegheny County executive, raised $1.6 million and spent $1.7 million during the month surrounding the May 18 primary. Corbett, the state attorney general, raised $1.4 million and spent $1.8 million.
