U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann raised more than $14.4 million in her bid for re-election for U.S. House in 2012, $900,000 more than the record amount she raised for the 2010 race, KARE-TV reported.
The information was culled from new Federal Election Commission campaign finance data.
According to KARE, Bachmann spent $11.8 million on the race, where she narrowly defeated hotel magnate Jim Graves.
Bachmann, who raised $13.5 million in election cycle for the 2010, spent $11.6 million to defeat her DFL challenger, former state Sen. Tarryl Clark.
Meanwhile, MinnPost reports that Bachmann has repaid most of her campaign debt she accrued during her presidential run.
The publication said between Oct. 1 and Nov. 28, Bachmann transferred more than $750,000 from her congressional campaign to pay down the debt, leaving with $170,000 to go before the presidential campaign is paid off.
