Klobuchar brings in $800K in third quarter

WASHINGTON – Amy Klobuchar’s Senate re-election campaign raised $800,000 in the three months ending Sept. 30. She enters the final stretch of the fall campaign with more than $4.8 million on hand, likely far exceeding her Republican rival, state Rep. Kurt Bills.

Since her election in 2006, Klobuchar has raised almost $8.6 million.

As Klobuchar’s seat is considered safe by many political handicappers, Klobuchar’s campaign is not drawing the large sums other U.S. Senate races are. For example, Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in Missouri raised $5.8 million in the most recent quarter.

In addition to campaigning in Minnesota, Klobuchar has been raising money for other Democratic Senate candidates including McCaskill and Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin.
