Mark Dayton, Matt Entenza spend and barely lift a finger
Remember a few months ago when Matt Entenza and Mark Dayton said they would be willing to spend millions of dollars from their own fortunes on their gubernatorial campaigns? Looks like they weren't kidding. This week's campaign cash reporting shows the two millionaire DFL candidates have dipped deep into their personal piggy banks -- while DFL-endorsed Margaret Anderson Kelliher had to come up with cash the old fashioned way, by begging.
Matt Entenza just wrote his campaign a check for a cool $4 million
So far in the governor's race, Entenza has loaned about $4 million of his own cash to his campaign. Dayton has dropped more than $3 million of his own money. And with two weeks until the DFL primary and months to the general elections, there's still plenty of cash to be spent.
