Fundraising figures to date

The candidates for governor started releasing their fundraising figures last week. The reports aren’t due until February 1st so it’s difficult to get all of the information from the campaigns.

Here’s a handy dandy snapshot of what we do know. I ranked them based on total raised from contributors in 2009.

Matt Entenza (Democrat) – raised a total of $300,000 from contributors in 2009. He also made a $10,000 contribution to the campaign and loaned the campaign $70,000. The campaign would not release his cash on hand totals.

Margaret Anderson Kelliher (Democrat) – raised a total of $254,000 from contributors in 2009. She made a direct contribution of $250 to her campaign. She has $81,000 left in the bank.

Paul Thissen (Democrat) – raised a total of $233,000 from contributors in 2009. He also loaned his campaign $20,000. He has $85,000 left in the bank.

Marty Seifert (GOP) – raised a total of $222,000 from contributors in 2009. He also loaned his campaign $20,000 and transferred $20,000 from his now defunct MN House campaign. He has $133,000 left in the bank.

Tom Rukavina (Democrat) – raised a total of $135,000 in 2009. He has $60,000 left in the bank.

Tom Emmer (GOP) – raised a total of roughly $105,000 from contributors in 2009. His spokesman said he loaned the campaign and gave in-kind contributions that amount to roughly $10,000. The campaign didn’t release the cash on hand totals.
