Tarryl Clark, a Democrat running for the party’s nomination in the 8th Congressional District, raised nearly $321,000 between January and March. Her campaign has more than $418,000 on hand.
The haul is Clark’s best since she entered the race last spring. The campaign said they had 3,100 new donors and 93 percent of contributors gave less than $100.
“It’s clear that Tarryl’s commitment to fighting for Minnesota’s families and communities is resonating,” campaign manager Joe Fox said in a statement. “These grassroots supporters will give again and again to power the campaign through November.”
Clark is one of three Democrats seeking the party’s nomination against incumbent freshman Rep. Chip Cravaack. She and former Duluth City Council member Jeff Anderson announced last month that they would run in an August primary. Former U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan is also running.
Cravaack, Anderson and Nolan have until Sunday to file fundraising reports with the Federal Election Commission.
