Gov. Eric Holcomb closed 2017 with $1.71 million in cash on hand, according to a news release.

The Holcomb for Indiana campaign says the amount sets a new record for funds in the bank for a gubernatorial campaign at the end of a governor’s first year in office.

“Following an unprecedented 106-day campaign, Governor Eric Holcomb rolled up his sleeves and got to work for Hoosiers, laying down five big-picture priorities that tackle the biggest challenges facing Indiana now and into the future,” said Indiana Republican Party Chairman and Holcomb for Indiana Treasurer Kyle Hupfer.

"This record cash-on-hand position shows that Hoosiers across Indiana are excited to show their support for Governor Holcomb’s transformative, solutions-based approach to governing.”

In 2005, then-Gov. Mitch Daniels' cash-on-hand was $1.39 million. Former Gov. Mike Pence's cash-on-hand in 2013 was $1.36 million.

The report will be filed Wednesday.
