GOP Sen. Norm Coleman announced that he raised $1.7 million in the last quarter and now has more than $6 million in the bank. DFL U.S. Senate candidate Al Franken says he raised $1.88 million in the last quarter and has about $3 million in the bank. Franken’s campaign says they raised a total of $7 million in 2007.
No word on the other candidates. I’ll update if they send out the numbers.
