House Republicans raised $1 million in 2011 with nearly $750,000 of that still on hand as they headed into the 2012 election year, according to a release from the House Republican Campaign Committee.

Year-end fundraising reports were due today witht the state Campaign Finance and Public Disclosre Board, but they will not be available on the board's website until tomorrow.

The release from the committee came with a confident message from House Speaker Kurt Zellers as his caucus heads into the 2012 election season trying to hold the majority.

"We are ahead of where we expected to be and continue to see support for the Republican agenda and the members who serve in the Minnesota House," Zellers said.
