Rounds Leads In Campaign Cash In Senate Race


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds has the clear edge in campaign cash heading toward the June Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Tim Johnson.
The GOP front-runner had about $1 million in his campaign coffers as of March 31 after raising about $724,000 during the quarter.
Sole Democratic candidate Rick Weiland had about $485,000 cash on hand offset by campaign debt of nearly $109,000. He raised nearly $204,000.
The quarter’s top fundraiser was Republican candidate Annette Bosworth at $772,000, but she pulled the vast majority of the contributions from out-of-state donors and her campaign fell deeper in debt during the quarter.
About 60 percent of the itemized contributions raised by Rounds were from out-of-state donors, compared to about 41 percent out-of-staters for Weiland.
