McFadden reports $1.7 million on hand to challenge Franken
January 13, 2014 — 9:24am
One of Sen. Al Franken’s leading GOP challengers, businessman Mike McFadden, reported $780,000 in fundraising during the last three months of 2013, for a total of $2.2 million since he entered the race in late May.
Franken has yet to make his fourth quarter reports public. His last report, filed in October, showed that he had raised more than $2 million in the previous three months, giving him a war chest of $3.9 million for his upcoming reelection bid.
McFadden’s latest report leaves him with $1.7 million in cash on hand in the race against Franken.
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."
