PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Supporters of Arizona's controversial illegal immigration law, continue to make donations to pay to defend the measure.

The governor's office reports the state has received just under 44,000 contributions, but confirms they aren't flowing in like they once did.

Still the pot adds up to more than $3.7 million.  So far, Governor Jan Brewer's office has spent $1.9 million to defend SB 1070 against legal challenges.
