PHOENIX (AP) - Two Republican candidates for Arizona governor who poured millions from their personal wealth into their primary election efforts last year were the top donors in the 2014 election.

A new national analysis of top five donors in each state shows former internet company executive Christine Jones and now-Gov. Doug Ducey topped the list for statewide Arizona races. The analysis done by the Center for Public Integrity was released Wednesday.

Also on the list was Jones' former boss at internet domain company GoDaddy, Bob Parsons.

The others making the top five were the Republican and Democratic attorneys general associations. Those groups were backing their respective candidates in the general election.

The analysis didn't capture all spending.

Jones spent $5.4 million while Ducey pumped $3 million into his winning effort.
