ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — None of the would-be successors to retiring Rep. Michele Bachmann has an overwhelming money advantage in Minnesota’s 6th District.

Former GOP Reps. Phil Krinkie and Tom Emmer are tightly bunched with $300,000 and $275,000 respectively in their campaign accounts. Krinkie loaned his campaign the bulk of it, while Emmer relied on contributions from supporters.

Candidates had until Tuesday to submit quarterly campaign reports.

Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah loaned her campaign $150,000 to finish the quarter with $184,000 at her disposal. A fourth Republican candidate, state Sen. John Pederson, trailed with $40,000 remaining in his account.

No Democrats who have expressed interest in the race have filed campaign reports.
