U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., raised more than $123,000 toward her re-election campaign in the first three months of 2012 and has more than $222,000 in the bank.
McCollum’s number for this election are cycle are an improvement over 2010 when she raised nearly $97,000 and had $135,600 in the bank.
Republican Dan Flood dropped out of the race for the Republican endorsement in Minnesota’s Fourth Congressional District last month, leaving Republican Anthony Hernandez as McCollum’s lone registered opponent. He has not yet filed his campaign fundraising records with the Federal Election Commission.
Hernandez had filed to seek the party’s endorsement in the U.S. Senate race against Democratic incumbent Amy Klobuchar but left that campaign last month to take on McCollum. Ford ended his campaign having raised less $5,000, campaign finance records show.
