DFL State Senator Tarryl Clark, who’s running against Republican U.S. House Rep. Michele Bachmann for the 6th District House seat, will release fundraising numbers soon, says spokeswoman Carrie Lucking.
Lucking says they’re still calculating numbers for the third quarter report:
However, we are confident that we will report another record-setting quarter. We have amassed over 40,000 individual donors. We raised over $100,000 online yesterday and have the resources to defeat Congresswoman Bachmann. We have always expected to be outraised and outspent by Congresswoman Bachmann, but we have the resources necessary to compete and win in November.
Earlier today, Bachmann’s spokesman Sergio Gor said their camp had raised more than twice as much as their second quarter fundraising haul, putting their third quarter haul at more than $3.4 million. Just how much more than that $3.4 million they pulled in is not yet clear.
