COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio Gov. John Kasich has $2.1 million on hand ahead of his 2014 re-election bid.

Campaign finance reports filed Thursday show the Republican governor spent about $244,000 in the second half of the year and raised nearly $904,000.

The first-term governor says he plans to run again and has raised more than $2.7 million over the past two years.

Other statewide elected officials, all Republican, also are putting away cash for likely re-election bids next year.

Secretary of State Jon Husted ended 2012 with more than $1 million in the bank.

Attorney General Mike DeWine had $675,000, and auditor Dave Yost had just under $350,000.

Treasurer Josh Mandel reported just $219 on hand after raising millions in an unsuccessful challenge to U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown last year.
