So far the No on 92 campaign has raised more than $1 million, about $800,000 of which is still on hand, according to the Oregon Elections Division Orestar system. Advocates of the measure actually have raised $1.8 million this year, but because they spent $1 million on signature-gathering efforts to qualify it for the November 4 ballot, they report about $360,000 on hand in their principal campaign committee.
