AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott reports raising more than $1 million in August for his Republican gubernatorial run.

Abbott has continued a robust fundraising pace since launching his campaign in July, when he entered the race having already raised nearly $23 million. He is the early favorite to replace Gov. Rick Perry, who is not seeking re-election after 14 years.

His only challenger so far is Republican Tom Pauken, the former head of the Texas Workforce Commission.

Democratic state Senator Wendy Davis is also considering a run after her filibuster to temporarily block new Texas abortion restrictions made her an overnight party star. But Davis has delayed a decision while caring for her ailing father.

Abbott also raised $1 million in July.
