SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Financial disclosure reports show Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has raised about $150,000 for his election campaign.

Herbert became Utah's 17th governor earlier this month when Jon Huntsman resigned to become U.S. ambassador to China. Herbert had been serving as Huntsman's lieutenant governor.

A special election will be held in 2010 to fill out the remainder of Huntsman's term.

Filings by Herbert's political action committee show his largest contributors are Clyde Companies Inc., the Utah Association of Realtors and Consol Energy Inc. Each donated at least $15,000 to Herbert.

Utah places no limits on how much money individuals or corporations can donate.

The financial disclosure reports were due Monday. The next financial disclosure report for political action committees is due in January.
