PIERRE (AP) - Republican Marty Jackley raised more than $1 million between his South Dakota governor campaign group and political action committee in 2017.

Marty Jackley for Governor reported raising roughly $947,000 in cash and donated goods and services in a year-end campaign finance report. The political action committee, Friends of Marty Jackley, brought in roughly $137,000 in cash and in-kind contributions last year.

Jackley ended the year with over $1.5 million in his governor account, which received about $842,000 in contributions from individuals. The PAC account reported ending the period with nearly $93,000 on hand.
