SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gov. Jon Huntsman says he can raise $2 million or $3 million without much trouble for his re-election next year. He may need it. New political-action committee filings show the governor's PAC has only raised around $200,000 this year, and he already has spent most of it.

Huntsman says he will set up a campaign organization with a fundraising arm by the end of the year and begin raising money in early 2008.

Huntsman's Special Initiatives Office PAC filing shows that Huntsman has a few large donors -- individuals and businesses that gave him $10,000 a pop.

His PAC filing shows he accepted a $10,000 contribution from the Utah Association of Realtors, one of the largest political-action committees in the state.
