The numbers are slowly rolling in.
Monday morning state House Rep. Marty Seifert, one of seven Republican candidates for governor, announced he'd raised $222,000 from contributors, lent his campaign $20,000 and transferred $20,000 from his old House campaign in 2009. He ended the year with $133,000 cash on hand, which is, as he notes, more than any other reported cash on hand figures released by other candidates thus far.
But only three candidates have released cash-on-hand figures so far and not all candidates have released their campaign finance figures. State law doesn't require candidates to report on 2009 fundraising until Feb. 1. There are 19 -- soon to be 20 -- DFLers and Republicans in the governor's race.
Here's a look at some of the other figures gubernatorial campaigns have released:
Former state Rep. Matt Entenza, DFL, raised $300,000 from contributors, lent his campaign $70,000 and gave his campaign $10,000 on top of that. His campaign hasn't released his cash-on-hand figure.
DFL state Rep. Tom Rukavina raised $135,000 and ended with $60,000.
DFL state Rep. Paul Thissen raised $233,000 and lent his campaign $20,000 in addition to that. He ended the year with around $88,000 cash on hand.
Republican state Rep. Tom Emmer raised $105,000 from contributors and made an in-kind donation to his campaign of a little under $10,000 on top of that. His campaign hasn't released his cash-on-hand figure.
House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, DFL, raised $254,000 last year and ended the year with $81,000 cash on hand. She contributed $250 to her campaign.
