STILLWATER, MN – State Senator Karin Housley (R-St. Marys Point) raised more than $110,000 in 2019, according to the campaign’s latest report made public by the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board on Monday. Housley’s year-end total is more than any other state legislative candidate in Minnesota and is among the highest ever for a state legislative candidate in a non-election year.
“The people of District 39 have been unwavering in their generosity and support. We’ve accomplished a lot together; we passed historic elder care protections, cut taxes, invested in our kids, and made our parks and trails better – to name only a few,” said Senator Housley, who serves as chair of the Senate Family Care and Aging Committee and is an assistant majority leader. “Our year-end fundraising success shows people across the district – and state – are enthusiastic about maintaining our Senate Republican majority in 2020 and beyond.”
Housley raised $111,007.00 from more than 500 individual contributors in 2019 – the most of any state legislative candidate in Minnesota. Housley enters 2020 with $116,366.30 in cash on hand, which is more than any other state legislator in Minnesota.
In 2012, Housley won elected to the Minnesota Senate in District 39 by 631 votes. She was re-elected in 2016 by more than 10,000 votes. District 39 includes Forest Lake, Stillwater, Lake Elmo, Oak Park Heights, and the surrounding St. Croix Valley.
