Fundraising Figures for 1st District

A downstate Democrat looking to take over for Bart Stupak has raised nearly $115,000 for her Congressional run.

Connie Saltonstall of Charlevoix put $15,000 of her own money into the campaign.

That’s according to the Federal Election Commission.

They say their count was accurate as of the end of March.

The FEC didn’t list numbers for Dr. Dan Benishek, who’s running in the Republican primary for the seat.

But the surgeon at Dickinson County Memorial Hospital said 2 days ago that he has nearly $225,000 in cash on hand.
