Democrats seeking to maintain control of Minnesota's House of Representatives have a hefty cash advantage heading into Election Day.
Fundraising reports Tuesday show House Democrats' campaign arm has more than $1 million on hand. That's five as much as House Republicans, who need to win seven seats to retake the majority. Democrats' fundraising and spending on House races has nearly doubled the GOP's.
In the governor's race, Republican hopeful Jeff Johnson has narrowed a fundraising gap with Gov. Mark Dayton. Johnson has $454,000 in the bank, compared with Dayton's $342,000. Dayton has outspent Johnson by nearly $1 million.
Money advantages won't equal a win but help candidates get their messages out with ads and direct mail.
