First Reporting Period Tallies For CD6
Former state Rep. Tom Emmer has an early lead in one aspect of the open-seat race in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District: The chase for campaign dollars.
Emmer’s first fundraising report filed Monday showed he had collected $225,000 since entering the race to replace retiring GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann.
Among his Republican challengers, state Sen. John Pederson reported raising $35,000 and spending little so far. Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah said her campaign raised over $19,000 in about one week.
