Bachmann Top Fundraiser - PLS Donate to Jim Graves

 From HuffPo 

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was one of the top fundraisers in the House during the first three months of the year, USA Today reports.

According to filings, Bachmann raised nearly $675,000. Only three congressman ranked ahead of her -- House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) with $1.4 million; House Majority Leader Eric Cantor with nearly $961,00 and Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who raised nearly $844,000.

WASHINGTON — Democrat Jim Graves will challenge Rep. Michele Bachmann again in 2014.

“These days Congress is all about and scoring political points rather than actually solving problems and Minnesota’s 6th District – my home – is losing out because of that more than anywhere," Graves said in a statement announcing his run. "I’m not interested in celebrity, only in solutions.”

Bachmann, coming off a failed presidential campaign, beat Graves by only 4,300 votes in November, easily the closest race of the cycle in Minnesota, and the tightest re-election campaign of her career. Bachmann underperformed in what is considered a conservative district, winning 50.5 percent of the vote while Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney garnered 56.3 percent

Keep this in mind

During the 2012 cycle, Bachmann raised an impressive $14.4 million, and ended up outspending Graves by a 12-to-1 margin.
