With yet another anemic fundraising quarter, Collin Peterson refuses to take himself off the retirement watch list. Bringing in only $141,000 in Q2, Peterson has just $236,000 cash on hand, a far lower number than you’d expect from a Democrat in a Republican leaning district.
Last quarter, Peterson raised only $128,000, stoking retirement talk despite his claims to the contrary. When asked if he’s running again, Peterson says, “Yes. Until I’m not,” without a hint of irony. But if Peterson were so determined to run again, wouldn’t he focus a little more on his fundraising?
