Republican U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen has a 68 to 1 cash advantage over his likely Democratic opponent.
After raising nearly $431,800 during the first quarter of 2014, Paulsen has $1.979 million banked for his reelection bid, according to his campaign.
Paulsen’s likely Democratic challenger, Sharon Sund, has $28,835 cash on hand after raising almost $33,600 during the first two weeks of her campaign, which began in mid-March.
Sund, a former Hennepin County DFL chairwoman, is the lone challenger to Paulsen in the state’s Third Congressional District.
“For sure, we’re talking a David and Goliath story, but David had some things … going for him,” Sund
told the Star Tribune last week.
