(Harrisburg) --  Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Wolf's campaign coffers still show the strain of his four-way primary battle. 

Wolf, a businessman who poured $10 million into his winning campaign and leads Governor Corbett in the polls, reports he raised $3.5 million over the five weeks that ended June 9. But his cash on hand continues to hover around $3 million. 

Corbett was unopposed for the Republican nomination. He has $4.8 million in the bank, even though his re-election campaign spent money twice as fast as it came in during the weeks surrounding Pennsylvania's May primary.

An earlier story is below: 

Corbett received $1.4 million in contributions but spent nearly $3 million. That pushed his total expenditures to more than $11 million.

Governor Corbett's re-election campaign spent money twice as fast as it came in during the weeks surrounding Pennsylvania's primary.

Campaign finance reports filed today showed the Republican governor received $1.4 million in contributions between May 6 and June 9, while he spent nearly $3 million, pushing his total expenditures to more than $11 million.

Corbett still had $4.8 million on hand.

Democratic nominee Tom Wolf's report was not available this morning. But Katie McGinty, one of the three candidates Wolf defeated in the primary, reported spending nearly $860,000, mostly for TV time, in the final weeks of that campaign.

As of early May, the reports showed the five candidates had collectively raised more than $50 million and spent $39 million even before the primary.
