DFL spends more in 2 of 3 south Washington County legislative races


Democrats spent more and won more in south Washington County last fall.

Sen. Katie Sieben far outspent her opponent in the 2012 election, and freshman Rep. Dan Schoen also had more resources than his challengers, according to final campaign finance reports submitted last week.

In the other local legislative race, Republican Rep. Denny McNamara's spending margin over his Democratic opponent resembled his lopsided win on Nov. 6.
