WASHINGTON -- Angie Craig, one of the two DFL candidates hoping to unseat Rep. John Kline in the Second Congressional District, raised $200,000 in two weeks, her campaign said Tuesday.
Craig, a vice president of a medical device company,told the Star Tribune she was planning to run in January. She didn't file paperwork until April 5, which was the start of the second quarter of this year.
Craig is one of two DFL candidates who have announced a challenge to Kline. Dr. Mary Lawrence, an ophthalmologist, said last week she, too, was seeking the DFL endorsement. Lawrence said she has raised $215,000 and donated another $300,000 to her campaign.
Republican David Gerson has said he plans to challenge Kline on the Republican side.
First quarter fundraising totals will be posted tomorrow.
