WASHINGTON – DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s re-election campaign hauled in just over $1 million for the three month period ending Sept. 30, bringing her stockpile of cash on hand to more than $4 million.
The amount is slightly less than her second quarter fundraising, when she brought in $1.1 million, but the state’s senior U.S. Senator has a daunting financial advantage over her declared Republican opponents, former state representative Dan Severson and Joe Arwood.
In the second quarter, Severson raised just $3,700; more recent results aren’t yet available. Arwood only recently declared his candidacy and has not yet filed any paperwork on his fundraising.
