AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas politicians are filing their campaign finance reports, providing a clue as to how well they're doing ahead of the March 4 primaries.

Texas law requires that candidates and officeholders tell the state Wednesday how much money they've raised since July 15, and how they've spent it.

Politicos are already taking a hard look at the reports of the two leading candidates for governor, Democrat Wendy Davis and Republican Greg Abbott. Davis on Tuesday reported raising more than $12 million over six months, while Abbott reported $11.5 million over three months.

The reports will also reveal the health of the campaigns in the crowded Republican races for lieutenant governor, attorney general and state comptroller. Many candidates have already said they've raised more than $1 million in the last six months.
