The DFL Party’s state fundraising report, scheduled for public release on Wednesday, will say that the party has $623,220 cash-on-hand.

The party also has $493,235 in cash in its federal account, the party said in a release Tuesday evening, giving it $1.1 million to spend in the final weeks before the election.

"We’re not done fundraising," said Ken Martin, DFL Party chair.

The party has raised nearly $4 million in its state account and another $2 million in its federal account this year.

It has about $85,000 in debt in both its federal and state campaign arms.

The fundraising reporting deadlines don't " always line up with when you pay bills," Martin said. None of it represents lingering unpaid bills.

The DFL, which is defending Gov. Mark Dayton, Sen. Al Franken, DFL U.S. House and Minnesota House members this year, has already spent nearly $1 million on television ads to support Dayton.

The Republican Party has not yet released its state fundraising figures.
