The first quarter Federal Election Commission financial disclosure reports will be published this week, but some candidates are already releasing their numbers. Such is the case for appointed Minnesota Sen. Tina Smith (D). According to her fledgling campaign, Sen. Smith has raised a whopping $1.84 million since she was appointed in early January. The campaign did not indicate its cash-on-hand figure. Her most significant Republican opponent, state Sen. Karin Housley (R-Stillwater), is reporting receipts of $514,000 with $501,000 in her campaign account.
