Senate candidate Ravnsborg raises $3,100 during 1Q

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Yankton attorney and soldier Jason Ravnsborg (ROUNDS'-berg) has raised slightly more than $3,100 during the first three months of 2014 for his campaign for U.S. Senate.

Ravnsborg's Federal Election Commission report shows that the Republican candidate loaned his campaign $20,000, and about $19,000 was spent during the quarter. That left slightly less than $4,000 cash on hand as of March 31.

Ravnsborg is one of five Republicans seeking that party's nomination for the seat being vacated by the retiring Sen. Tim Johnson. Also vying for the GOP nod are former Gov. Mike Rounds, state Sen. Larry Rhoden of Union Center, state Rep. Stace Nelson of Fulton and Sioux Falls physician Annette Bosworth.

Rick Weiland is the sole Democrat, and former Republican U.S. Sen. Larry Pressler is running as an independent.
