(Harrisburg)_ Democratic Governor Tom Wolf is heading into June with almost a 10-to-1 cash advantage over his Republican challenger Scott Wagner in Wolf's bid for a second term in November.

Campaign finance reports filed at Thursday evening's deadline show Wolf with $15.2 million in his campaign account and Wagner with $1.6 million in his.

The election is November 6.

Wagner won last month's three-way Republican primary.

All told, Wagner and his two primary rivals, Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth, spent more than $21 million.

Including non-cash contributions of services or goods, they rang up more than $23.5 million, including $14.5 million by Wagner.

Wolf had no primary opponent. 

Labor unions are a big source of cash for Wolf, while Wagner remains his biggest donor, at about $11 million, including non-cash donations.
