With Mike Rounds noting that he posted around $516,000 in donations, and Stace Nelson downplaying expectations, claiming that “We did a little bit better than last quarter,” in reference to last quarter’s $43,500, two candidates, Rhoden & Bosworth have largely remained mum.
The 5th man in the race, Jason Ravnsborg has only been in the hunt for a few weeks, and would not be expected to post much in fundraising for the quarter, making next quarter the time when he has to shine.
In reference to those who are reporting for their first full quarters, I’d been told by the campaign that Bosworth would be posting some respectable dollars, and heard some rumblings here and there.
While it’s less than 1/2 of what Rounds raised, and we don’t know her cost-basis for raising those funds, it’s a respectable number. And raises her profile among the field considerably as a contender for the office.
