Democrat John Kitzhaber has the current lead in fundraising among the candidates for governor, according to state campaign finance reports.

With $389,670 raised as of Monday, Kitzhaber is ahead of fellow Democrat Bill Bradbury and has a slight lead over Republican Chris Dudley.

Political analyst Jim Moore said Kitzhaber's early fundraising lead shows that the former two-term governor is viewed by some as the Democratic front runner.

"The early givers are favoring Kitzhaber," said Moore, who teaches political science at Pacific University in Forest Grove.
