ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson has raised more money in the past three months than he did in at this stage in his previous campaign. But he has less in the bank compared with the same time in 2012.

Peterson’s fundraising report shows he collected about $218,000 from January through March. That left him with roughly $523,000 in reserve as he seeks a 13th term representing a western Minnesota district.
