Republican gubernatorial candidate Russ Fulcher released his latest campaign finance report Friday. The report shows Fulcher raised $251,642 last year, $100,000 of which he personally loaned to his campaign.

Fulcher is currently a state senator in the Idaho Legislature. He's running against fellow Republican Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter in the May primary.

The report, filed with the Secretary of State’s office, shows Fulcher received cash from dozens of donors, including several who gave $5,000. 

The report also shows Fulcher loaned his campaign $100,000 in the last three months of 2013. 

In the last half of 2013, Gov. Otter raised $685,845. The lone Democrat in the race, A.J. Balukoff, has raised $111,000.
