(Rochester) - After out-raising her opponent 2:1 in the first quarter in the race, State Senator Carla Nelson released the following statement announcing that this quarter she has raised more money towards winning the August Republican Primary than her opponent:
The Carla Nelson campaign is excited to announce that after successfully out-raising our opponent 2:1 in our first quarter, we have once again bested him by raising more money towards winning the August Republican Primary this quarter. Further, we are excited to announce that we now have more cash on hand to spend towards winning the Republican Primary overall than our opponent.
"I am humbled by the outpouring of support from conservatives across Minnesota. However, what is even more exciting is what our fundraising success means about our message. The people of Minnesota's 1st District have shown that they want a proven conservative with an actual voting record of conservative achievements and a history of winning tough elections. Combine our fundraising success with key endorsements from the Susan B. Anthony List and Winning For Women, we are now better prepared to win the Republican Primary in August than anyone else in the race. I look forward to the campaign ahead where I'll be able to share my message of being a proven conservative leader with voters across the district."
