Emmer raises $200,000 for 6th District race

WASHINGTON — Republican Tom Emmer raised $200,000 during the last three months of 2013, his congressional campaign announced on Tuesday. 

Emmer, a former gubernatorial candidate, has raised more than $500,000 since announcing his bid to replace retiring Rep. Michele Bachmann in the 6th Distict.

There are two other Republicans in the race: Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah and former state Rep. Phil Krinkie. Neither has reported their fourth quarter fundraising totals yet, but Sivarajah raised $50,000 between mid-June and the end of September, and Krinkie brought in more than $38,000 in the 10 weeks after he joined the race.

A fourth candidate, state Sen. John Pederson dropped out of the race last week.
