The four major gubernatorial candidates continued Friday to take in contributions as they made their pitches to voters before Tuesday's primary elections.

The leading fundraiser, Attorney General Drew Edmondson, reported receiving $16,750 from 22 contributors. That puts his total amount raised so far at $2.64 million.

His Democratic opponent, Lt. Gov. Jari Askins, reported contributions of $14,250, putting her total raised so far at $2.12 million.

U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin, R-Oklahoma City, reported receiving $4,200 in contributions for her gubernatorial campaign. She's raised $2.52 million so far.

Her GOP opponent, state Sen. Randy Brogdon, of Owasso, reported $6,175 in contributions, putting his total so far at $407,779.

The most recent campaign reporting period ended July 12. Candidates now are required to report contributions or loans on a daily basis through Tuesday's primaries.

In other races, the Republican candidates for attorney general continued to report last-minute contributions.
