  • Hawaii: Rep. Mazie Hirono (D) raised more than $1 million from 7,161 individual donors in the first quarter. Former Gov. Linda Lingle (R) raised close to $1.4 million. Neither released cash-on-hand totals, and former Rep. Ed Case (D) has not yet released any of his numbers.
  • Minnesota: Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) continues to prove herself as a fundraising powerhouse. She raised $1 million in the first quarter and has $5.2 million in her war chest.
  • Nebraska: Former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D) started his campaign with a big bang and raised $900,000 in his first quarter. He has $566,000 in the bank. State Sen. Deb Fischer (R), on the other hand, continues to have trouble on the money front. She raised $61,000 and has $556,000 in cash on hand. She is vying with state Attorney General Jon Bruning and state Treasurer Don Stenberg for the GOP nod.
  • North Dakota: Former state Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp (D) raised $712,000 in the first quarter and has $849,000 in the bank. She is battling it out with Rep. Rick Berg (R) for the seat that Roll Call Politics rates Leans Republican.
  • Wisconsin: Businessman Eric Hovde (R) raised $110,000 in the few weeks since he filed in early March. He has $1.6 million in cash on hand, much of which comes from self funding. Former GOP Gov. Tommy Thompson‘s campaign raised more than $660,000 and his cash on hand was unavailable. Republican Mark Neumann released his numbers earlier this week. He had a $650,000 first quarter haul. Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D), who essentially has a lock on the Democratic primary, also released her numbers earlier this week and showed a $2 million quarterly haul with $2.8 million in cash on hand.
