COLUMBUS: The Republican running for Ohio governor is racking up small cash donations as he fights his opponent's efforts to portray him as a Wall Street insider.

John Kasich — a former Lehman Brothers managing director — has gathered almost twice as much as Democratic incumbent Gov. Ted Strickland from donors giving $250 or less. That's according to an Associated Press analysis of the contributions so far in the race.

Campaign finance reports show the former congressman has raised slightly more than $2 million from small donors, compared with the more than $1 million Strickland has gathered.

The gubernatorial contenders were to report Thursday how much money they had on hand in the final days before the Nov. 2 election.
