Gov. Neil Abercrombie has brought in more than $2.4 million for his re-election campaign next year, according to a state campaign-finance report filed Thursday.

Abercrombie, who raised more than $4.5 million for his successful campaign in 2010, will have the early fundraising advantage and the benefit of incumbency at his back as he seeks a second four-year term.

The governor raised $2.4 million through the end of last year — $297,300 in the past six months — and had $1.4 million in cash on hand, according to the report. The money includes more than $383,950 left over from 2010.
