A new report from the Michigan Campaign Finance Network finds that the state's top Political Action Committees have raised nearly $10-million more than they did at this point two years ago. 

The news release from the campaign finance watchdog group says it analyzed the top 150 PACs in the state, and found they have raised $32-million so far. At this point in 2012 the top political action committees had raised just over $22-million. This year's figure represents a 44% increase over the previous election cycle. 

The Republican Governors Association has the top fundraising total, Turnaround Detroit, a SuperPAC that supported the candidacy of Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan was second.
