Democrat Tarryl Clark’s campaign announced today that her campaign for Congress raised $228,000 in the third quarter. The campaign issued a statement saying Clark also has $235,000 in the bank.
Clark is seeking the DFL endorsement in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District and hopes to challenge GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack in 2012. She announced earlier this year that she was moving from her home in St. Cloud to Duluth so she can challenge Cravaack.
Cravaack and Democrats Rick Nolan and Jeff Anderson have not filed their reports yet. Democrat Daniel Fanning didn’t get into the race until last week so he doesn’t have to file a campaign finance report until January.
Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District includes northeastern Minnesota but there’s no guarantee the district will keep the same shape. The 2010 Census requires Gov. Dayton and the GOP-controlled Legislature to redraw the political boundaries. A court appointed panel will take over the map if Dayton and Republicans fail to reach agreement by Feb. 21.
