(Harrisburg) -- John Hanger, the only declared candidate for governor in 2014, says his campaign has taken in $200,000.

Hanger, a Democrat, said he personally invested $25,000 of the nearly $54,000 in contributions that he listed on his first campaign finance report filed Thursday.

The former state environmental protection secretary and former state utility regulator says he raised the rest of the $200,000 since the end-of-year cutoff for that report.

At least a half-dozen other Democrats are considering challenges to Republican Governor Tom Corbett when he runs for a second term next year.

Corbett's year-end report was not available Thursday, but he spent $24 million on his 2010 campaign and remains a potent fundraiser. Last year, he gave more than $200,000 to the state Republican Party and the GOP's legislative campaign committees.
