First District DFL candidate Dan Feehan raised $154,000 in the last three months of 2017, according to a campaign press release.

The release states that is the most money ever raised by a non-incumbent in the First District in the first two quarters.

"Our strong fourth quarter shows continued momentum for our campaign," Feehan said, "People in the First District are responding to our campaign's message of moving beyond politics and showing that in southern Minnesota, we all do our part in service to keep our communities strong.

Feehan, an Iraq War veteran living in North Mankato, announced his bid for Congress last summer. In his first quarter, he raised more than $253,000.

According to the press release, Feehan has more than $286,000 in cash on hand. His fundraising report has not yet been filed with the Federal Election Commission. Candidates have until Jan. 31 to file the report for the fourth quarter of 2017.

Feehan is one of seven Democrats running for the 1st District seat. The others are Johnny Akzam, former Sen. Vicki Jensen, Colin Minehart, Bob Ries, Joe Sullivan and Rich Wright. Two Republicans — Jim Hagedorn and Sen. Carla Nelson — are also running for the seat.
