Republican Dan Severson’s U.S. Senate campaign is reporting first quarter fundraising of $53,884 and says it ended March with a little more than $40,000 in campaign cash on hand.
Severson, a former state representative from Sauk Rapids, has been running for Senate since May 2011.
Another candidate, Pete Hegseth, got into the race in March and reported much stronger fundraising of $160,000 for the first quarter and $130,000 cash on hand as of March 31.
And state Rep. Kurt Bills, R-Rosemount, the latest entrant in the race to take on Democrat Amy Klobuchar, has not yet reported his first quarter fundraising numbers. Klobuchar’s campaign told reporters it ended the quarter with more than $5.2 million in campaign cash.
