Correction: 8th District-Fundraising story


MINNEAPOLIS — In a story Oct. 15 about fundraising in Minnesota's 8th Congressional District, The Associated Press incorrectly compared figures supplied by Stewart Mills' campaign for a three-month period with a report filed by Rick Nolan's campaign for a nine-week period.

The comparison led to an erroneous conclusion that their recent fundraising was about even. Fundraising reports show that Nolan outpaced Mills in fundraising between July and September.

A corrected version of the story is below:

DFL incumbent Nolan outpacing GOP challenger Mills in 8th District fundraising

MINNEAPOLIS — Rep. Rick Nolan has outpaced Republican challenger Stewart Mills in recent fundraising with the November election closing in.

Between July and September, Nolan pulled in about $647,000 compared with about $435,000 for Mills. But Mills also loaned his campaign $128,000 during that same period.

Nolan had nearly $526,000 in the bank at the end of September, while Mills had almost $255,000.

For the entire election cycle, Nolan has raised $1.76 million while Mills has amassed $1.7 million in fundraising and personal loans.

Nolan is seeking his second consecutive term after unseating then-freshman Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack in 2012. Nolan also served in Congress in the 1970s.

Northeastern Minnesota's 8th District was represented for decades by Democrat Jim Oberstar but is now a swing district.
