Total Receipts This Cycle: $4,074,622
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who formed the Tea Party Caucus, released the all-Republican roster of the new caucus, and among those 40 members seeking reelection, two representatives tower over the crowd, while many others have raised well-below-average amounts in their efforts to retain their seats.
Bachmann is the top Tea Party Caucus fundraiser and is also among the House's top fundraisers. As of the end of June, she had taken in $4,074,622 in her tough race against Democratic challenger Tarryl Clark. Fully 89 percent of Bachmann's money this cycle—over $3.6 million—has come from individual contributions.
