McMillan's Tennessee gubernatorial committee raises $107,000

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former state House Majority Leader Kim McMillan has raised about $107,000 since forming a committee to explore a gubernatorial bid.

McMillan is the first person to form an exploratory committee for a possible gubernatorial run in 2010.

In a Federal Election Commission filing Tuesday, McMillan said she spent about $8,000 in the quarter ending June 30, leaving her with about $99,000.

The Clarksville Democrat didn't have to venture far from home for the money she's raised so far: More than $97,000 of her contributions came from hometown residents.

McMillan served in the state House from 1994 until 2006. She served on Gov. Phil Bredesen's Cabinet before leaving to work at Austin Peay State University last year.
