Michelle Fischbach, the Trump-endorsed Republican candidate for Minnesota’s 7th District and former Lt. Governor of Minnesota, reported raising $228,000 in her first quarterly filing of the year with the Federal Election Commission.
Fischbach’s federal committee, Fischbach for Congress, will show receipts of $228k, with $312k cash-on-hand for the filing period ending March 31, 2020. Fischbach’s first quarter fundraising haul of $228k marked the second consecutive quarter where she outraised the incumbent Congressman Collin Peterson by over $60,000. Her campaign said this was the first time in the 30 years Collin Peterson has been in Congress that his Republican opponent has outraised him in two consecutive quarters. This brings Fischbach’s total amount raised over the seven-month time frame since she announced her campaign in September 2019 to $593k.
