Out-of-state union cash pollutes Minnesota

Dem rakes in special-interest cash by opposing secret-ballot union elections

Al Franken for U.S. Senate announced today that the campaign raised $2.26 million in the second fundraising quarter of 2008. The campaign ends the quarter with $4.2 million cash on hand. In total, over 104,000 individuals - including almost 18,000 Minnesotans - have helped the campaign raise more than $11 million with an average contribution of just $64.

In the second quarter alone, 11,015 new people joined the campaign’s grassroots donor base. Overall, the campaign received contributions from 4,600 Minnesota donors this quarter.

“Minnesotans are tired of Norm Coleman’s special-interest politics and the Bush-Coleman economic plan — and they’re ready for a change,” said Communications Director Andy Barr. “With the help of over 100,000 individuals (and absolutely no help from drug, insurance, and oil industry PACs), Al Franken is ready to spark that change in Washington.”
