Here’s some non-Minnesota news: Sheldon Silver has been out-paced in fund-raising by one of his Democratic primary challengers, Paul Newell, a community activist.
In the pre-primary filing report (which candidates are required to file 11 days before the primary), Newell raised $40,015. In that same time period, Silver raised $19,575.44. Attorney Luke Henry raised only $510.
Also worth noting: Newell is buying ads on FaceBook, and Google.
