WASHINGTON – DFL U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum raised more than $123,000 toward her re-election campaign in the first three months of 2012. The veteran St. Paul lawmaker has more than $222,000 in the bank, her campaign said Thursday.
McCollum has raised less than other members of the Minnesota congressional delegation who have announced their figures so far.
GOP candidate Dan Flood dropped out of the race for the Republican endorsement last month, and McCollum’s only rival is Republican Anthony Hernandez, who has not yet filed his fundraising paperwork. Hernandez had been competing for the GOP endorsement for the U.S. Senate race but left that contest in favor of taking on McCollum last month.
