Elwyn Tinklenberg's FEC report was posted yesterday.
He collected just over $99,000 in individual contributions and almost $28,000 from PAC's. About 20% of his contributions came from PAC's.
For comparison, in first quarter 2006 Tinklenberg hauled in about $39,500 in individual contributions and $23,000 from PAC's. Apples and Oranges, I know, since in 06 Tinklenberg was running against a formidable candidate in Patty Wetterling and the Congressional seat was open.
Honestly, it's not as bad as I had heard. Although with just over $100,000 cash on hand at the end of the quarter, the fundraising pace must pick up. I wonder if he'll start calling in some of the fundraising "big guns"?
Anyone see the Tinklenberg vehicle repair reimbursement on 1/21/08 of $1190.36? I'd like to hear the story behind that...
Were anxiously awaiting the release of Olson's FEC report. 2007, 4th Quarter, Olson had just over $92,000 cash on hand, with $119,000 in loans.
At the close of 07, Bachmann had nearly $800,000 cash on hand.
