Griffith has raised $347,000 in cash donations since announcing his bid for governor.

The former congressman has also loaned his campaign $391,000.

Griffith has a campaign balance of $21,625. Bentley has a campaign balance of $1.6 million going into the campaign's homestretch.

Both candidates recently debuted new campaign ads last month.

Griffith, in his ad, accuses Bentley of being afraid to debate him. Bentley's ad lashes out at federal government policies.
