    California Attorney General and democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown talks with reporters after voting June 8, 2010 in Oakland, California. California voters are heading to the polls to vote in the primary elections for governor, U.S. Senate and other statewide and local races.

    Democrat Jerry Brown has $23 million on hand in his race against former eBay chief executive Meg Whitman for California governor.

          His campaign reported Monday that it had raised slightly more than $2.6 million and spent nearly $131,000 during the most recent six-week reporting period. Whitman, a Republican, had not yet filed her report for the period, which runs from May 23 to June 30.
    Whitman has given her campaign $91 million so far and is expected to spend more than $150 million. She is expected to release her campaign spending report later in the day.
    Brown is getting help from unions that have been advertising on his behalf. His campaign spokesman, Steve Glazer, says Brown raised an additional $1 million in July.
