DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- The group dedicated to electing and re-electing Republican governors has now raised more than $100 million on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's watch.

The Republican Governors Association announced late Wednesday that it has brought in $102 million since Christie took over on Dec. 1, the most of any chair.

The group was not required to release the new numbers under any federal guidelines. And they will not be verifiable until December. But they serve as a show of strength in the race's final stretch.

Republicans are defending 22 of 36 gubernatorial seats that voters will decide on Tuesday.

The group's Democratic counterpart reported raising $47 million in 2014 through the end of September.
