Cravaack raises nearly $394,000 for re-election bid

Freshman Republican U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack raised nearly $394,000 for his re-election bid during the last three months, according to his campaign, and he has nearly $900,000 in the bank.

Cravaack’s haul is his best of the cycle so far. He’s raised nearly $1.4 million  for his first re-election bid. 

Three DFLers are running in an August primary to take on Cravaack: former state Sen. Tarryl Clark, former U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan and former Duluth City Councilman Jeff Anderson. Only Clark has reported her 2nd quarter numbers so far: she raised $232,000 and has $259,000 on hand.

Cravaack is the third Minnesota U.S. House incumbent to report fundraising numbers. In the 2nd District, Rep. John Kline raised $428,000 and has $1.3 million on hand, and fundraising extraordinaire Michele Bachmann raised $1.7 million for her re-election bid.

Fundraising reports are due to the Federal Election Commission on Sunday.
