TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Rick Scott keeps raising millions for his 2014 re-election campaign, putting considerable distance between himself and his announced challengers.

Campaign reports filed Wednesday show former Sen. Nan Rich raised over $39,000 in the last three months. Rich also received more than $31,000 in support from the Florida Democratic Party to pay for campaign staff.

A political committee linked to Scott, however, has raised more than $4.1 million during the last quarter. Let's Get to Work has raised nearly $14 million since Scott revived it during the summer of 2011.

Former Gov. Charlie Crist is seen as a potential challenger to Scott but he has not yet officially joined the race.

There are more than a dozen other candidates for governor. But they have raised little or no money.
