The money hunt: GOP primaries

Republicans are slated to square off in a handful of competitive state legislative primary contests on August 10. In most instances, the GOP rivals are vying to take on a DFL incumbent in districts that should be competitive.

But two-term incumbent Sen. Paul Koering, of Ft. Ripley, is running without the endorsement of the local Republican party and faces a primary challenge from Paul Gazelka. Four years ago, Koering won a GOP primary with 55 percent of the vote.

Here’s a look at how much money the candidates in five competitive races had raised and how much they had in the bank as of the July 19 reporting deadline:
