COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has $1.5 million cash on hand for a possible run for a second term in 2014.

Campaign disclosure forms filed this week show the Republican governor raised about $515,000 during the quarter that ended Dec. 31. Her campaign spent about $75,000.

Haley says she won't decide whether to seek a second term until the legislative session ends this summer.

However, her former chief of staff Tim Pearson announced leaving the governor's office in October to head up her possible re-election bid. Pearson managed Haley's 2010 gubernatorial race.

Donations from South Carolina-based businesses and residents accounted for less than 60 percent of the total raised during the quarter. Florida was next at 10 percent.

Haley spent nearly $4 million on her 2010 election.
