There are two distinct ways of looking at House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher’s pre-primary campaign finance report. On the one hand, she’s raised more money than any other gubernatorial candidate in the state. Since kicking off her campaign, the Minneapolis Democrat has taken in $1.2 million, including $984,000 in 2010. Kelliher has picked up contributions from more than 3,500 individuals, with an average donation of just over $200.
