Democrat Tarryl Clark, who is running for Congress in Minnesota's 8th Congressional District, announced today that she raised $320,971 in the first three months of the year. The campaign reports having $418,266 in the bank.
"Our very strong fundraising quarter keeps Tarryl on course to beat Chip Cravaack," said Joe Fox, Clark's campaign manager said in a statement. "With 3,100 new donors in the past three months alone, and 93% of our donors giving $100 or less at a time, it's clear that Tarryl's commitment to fighting for Minnesota's families and communities is resonating."
Clark announced last month that she will not abide by the DFL endorsement process and will run in the August primary. Duluth City Council member Jeff Anderson and former Congressman Rick Nolan are the other Democrats running in the race. Anderson also says he'll run in a primary.
The DFL nominee will take on GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack, who is currently serving in his first-term. Both political parties are targeting the northeastern Minnesota congressional district in this year's election.
Cravaack, Anderson and Nolan have not released their fundraising totals yet. The deadline is April 15.
