ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack has almost $900,000 to spend as he runs for re-election in a nationally watched race in northeastern Minnesota.

Cravaack’s campaign said Friday that he raised more than $393,000 from April through June and started July with more than $898,000 on hand.

Cravaack is a top Democratic target after unseating longtime Democratic Rep. Jim Oberstar in one of 2010’s biggest upsets. But a Democratic primary fight is giving him time to build up his resources.

He will face the winner of the Aug. 14 primary between Democrats Jeff Anderson, Tarryl Clark and Rick Nolan.

Clark said Thursday she had $260,000 at the end of June. Anderson and Nolan have yet to report their numbers.
