Gov. Dayton voluntarily released his campaign fundraising activity in the 1st Quarter of this year. He reports raising $28,000 between January 1 and April 1. He reported spending $12,000 during the same time period.
He pulled in $4,000 from lobbyists and PACs (before the legislative session began).
Dayton has been encouraging state lawmakers to change campaign finance law to require quarterly reporting. He said it would increase transparency in the legislative process. He told reporters earlier this week that he would veto any election law legislation that didn’t include this proposal. Republican legislators have not held a hearing on his proposal.
Here’s Dayton’s full report.
