(Harrisburg) -- Campaign finance reports are dribbling in from the dozen candidates running for three open seats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. 

On the Democratic side, Superior Court Judge Christine Donohue reports she raised $132,000, largely from lawyers.

That pushes her total contributions to nearly $340,000 as of the Sunday closeout of the reports. 

Among the Republican hopefuls, Superior Court Judge Cheryl Allen's contributions nudged her fundraising total to $35,000.

The latest report included $10,000 from a political committee called Fairness PA. 

Montour County District Attorney Rebecca Warren reporting giving her campaign $6,000 of her own money. 

Today is the first campaign finance deadline since the initial filings a month ago that showed the candidates had collectively raised about $3 million.
