Samuels’ donors were harder to discern by occupation because the campaign was still seeking information about their employment.
Cam Winton, who is originally from Pennsylvania, trailed the field in percent of donations from Minneapolis — 38 percent — and Minnesota in general.
Winton noted that he spent much of his life living outside Minnesota, and he has drawn upon childhood friends, former colleagues and classmates on the East Coast. A recent trip east for his wife’s college reunion included several fundraising stops, he said. New York and his native Pennsylvania top his outstate contributions.
“If I hadn’t been able to draw upon relationships I cultivated in the first 27 years of my life, boy that’s a problem. Right?” Winton said.
Regarding non-Minneapolis contributions, the energy attorney said he’s not a political “insider” like some candidates and that some residents have given just under the limit for itemized disclosure because they’re DFLers who are afraid they will be ostracized. About 17 percent of Winton’s total donations were unitemized.
Andrew collected a greater portion of his money in Minneapolis — 60 percent — than any other candidate. But the campaign still had fundraisers in St. Paul and the Coon Rapids area
Noting that Minneapolis is the economic engine of the state, Ellickson said, “The job of the Minneapolis mayor doesn’t stop at the border of Minneapolis.”
