Congress hopeful Madia raises almost $1 million in third quarter

Democrat Ashwin Madia, who is running for Congress in the Third District, said Thursday that his team had raised almost $1 million dollars for his campaign in the year's third quarter.

Madia is running in the Third District, who's seat is currently taken by Republican Rep. Jim Ramstad. This district is one that is highly contested, the Star Tribune reported.

Madia is running against Republican Erik Paulsen and Independence Party candidate David Dillon.

Madia's team said it made $997,632 in the quarter, but will not disclose their total amount until next week, the Associated Press reported, although the Star Tribune reported the number is around $2.1 million.

All of the candidates campaigns are expected to release their numbers next week.
