Gov. Steve Beshear, who is seeking re-election next year, announced that his campaign has raised more than $3 million for his 2011 campaign and has about $2.3 million available to spend over the next year.

Beshear is on a ticket next year with Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson as his running mate.

Beshear announced that he had raised money from more than 5,100 donors from 119 of Kentucky’s 120 counties but his statement didn’t say which county was holding out on him.

Republicans David Williams — the Senate president — and Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer teamed up to form a slate at the end of August. And Phil Moffett, a Louisville businessman, is running with state Rep. Mike Harmon of Junction City also are running.

The finance reports for Moffett and Williams’ slates are not yet available through the Registry of Election Finance.
