Margaret Anderson Kelliher, DFL-endorsed candidate for governor, said she's raised "over $1 million" for her campaign.
In some years, that might be a pretty strong mid-July number. But this year, it's likely dwarfed by the money spent by her two rivals in the August primary -- Mark Dayton and Matt Entenza -- who have personal finances to spend on the race.
Both have been up on the television airwaves for weeks. Kelliher just joined them this week with fairly modest airtime buy.
But, she said, her air time will: "continue to increase."
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
