ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota congressional candidates are showing off their campaign bank balances, an early indicator of strength in an election year.

GOP Rep. John Kline has a comfortable $1 million stockpiled as of the end of March for his re-election bid in Minnesota’s 2nd District. In the western 7th District, Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson reported having $752,000 at the ready.

Reports for challengers were also filtering in.

Democrat Tarryl Clark is one of three candidates vying to take on freshman Rep. Chip Cravaack in northeastern Minnesota. She announced Wednesday that she had raised $321,000 in the first three months of 2012, leaving her with $418,000 in the bank.

The deadline for candidates for the House, Senate and White House to report their fundraising totals and spending falls over the weekend.
