WASHINGTON — Rep. Erik Paulsen raised $380,000 in the second quarter, bringing his total for the cycle near to the $1.9 million mark. Paulsen’s campaign now has $1,347,000 cash on hand.
The filing deadline for the second quarter is Thursday. Paulsen’s DFL-endorsed opponent, Jim Meffert, has not released his fundraising totals yet.
Paulsen attributed his take to a message of fiscal discipline resonating in his district, and lots of hard work.
“I’m always going to work hard and I’m not going to be out-hustled,” Paulsen said.
Paulsen’s political action committee, ICE PAC, reported its first-ever donations today as well. Formed in the middle of the quarter, ICE PAC raised $12,000 from six donors (five individuals and Honeywell International‘s PAC)
ICE PAC, in turn, donated $5,500 to six GOP candidates in six states: North Dakota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Florida, Colorado and Alabama.
