The race to become Manitoba Progressive Conservative Party leader and premier was not close when it came to fundraising.
Glover’s financial returns, filed this week with Elections Manitoba, show she raised $188,000 in donations.
That’s about one-third of Stefanson’s haul of $576,000.

The race was called after former premier Brian Pallister announced last summer he was resigning.
Glover went to court and claimed there were voting irregularities but a judge ruled she did not prove that any alleged irregularities affected the result.
Both Glover and Stefanson raised more money than they spent and ended their campaigns with a small surplus.
Glover, a former Conservative MP, recorded $4,400 in legal fees, but spent far less than Stefanson on polling, advertising and salaries.
