Heitkamp enjoys major fundraising edge
North Dakota Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp enjoyed a major fundraising advantage over Republican challenger Tom Campbell heading into 2018, newly released federal campaign finance records show.
Heitkamp raised more than $1.3 million in the last three months of 2017 and had more than $4.4 million in cash on hand, according to Federal Election Commission records accessed Tuesday. She has raised more than $7.7 million this election cycle.
Campbell, a state senator and potato farmer from Grafton, raised almost $450,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017 and had almost $322,000 in cash on hand. His financial disclosure reports more than $1 million raised this election cycle, but almost three-fourths has come in the form of loans from the candidate.
