Gov. Rick Perry has replenished his depleted campaign war chest since he abandoned his presidential bid in January. This has fueled speculation that the longest-serving governor in Texas history will seek yet another term in 2014.
Perry raised nearly $2 million from the start of the year through June - even after a series of gaffes during his White House run left his political future looking murky.
He now has about $3.3 million cash-on-hand. This is slightly more than what he had midway through 2008, two years before he waged a successful primary battle against U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.
Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is widely believed to have gubernatorial aspirations, has raised $3 million this year. In all, Abbott has $14.5 million.
