Klobuchar ends quarter with $2.5M and no opponent
St. Paul, Minn. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar doesn't have a declared opponent yet, but she has $2.5 million in the bank.
Klobuchar's campaign released a fundraising report Monday showing that she raised slightly more than $1 million in the first three months of the year. It also showed the campaign bank balance as of the end of March.
Klobuchar is running for a second term next year after winning 58 percent of the vote in 2006. She is a former Hennepin County prosecutor and serves on committees for judiciary, commerce and agriculture and a joint House-Senate panel on the economy. She also heads a subcommittee on innovation and exports.
She raised and spent $9.5 million on her first race against Republican Mark Kennedy.
