Candidates for Congress shed light on fundraising

 

The Associated Press

The stockpiles in two competitive Minnesota congressional races are growing as both the Democratic incumbents and their Republican challengers pick up their fundraising pace.

In the state's westernmost district, Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson says he collected nearly $268,000 from April until June. His Republican challenger, state Sen. Torrey Westrom, pulled in $231,000. Peterson has more than twice what Westrom does in available cash.

Reports detailing the last three months of fundraising and spending were due Tuesday.

In the northeast, Republican Stewart Mills says he raised $338,000 and loaned his campaign a substantial amount. The executive in a family retail business is trying to unseat Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan. The incumbent raised $285,000 last quarter.

Despite being outraised, Nolan maintains a decent edge in the amount of campaign dollars banked.
