Few Surprises In Finance Reports By GOP Candidates For Governor
Some trends but few surprises in the new campaign finance reports filed by Minnesota’s candidates for governor. The reports cover campaign contributions, expenditures and cash balances for the first six months of the year.
Orono businessman Scott Honour leads the field of four Republicans vying to be the GOP candidate with a cash balance of $226,733. His contributions are an equally impressive $573,329. But that sum includes $300,000 that Honour loaned his campaign this year on top of the $100,000 loan he made in 2013.
