Session start means dash for Minn. campaign cash

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Monday is campaign money day for Minnesota lawmakers.

It's the final chance to raise money from lobbyists, associations and other big donors before the Legislature opens its 2013 session on Tuesday. When the gavel falls, prohibitions on certain donations blink on.

There were at least three major fundraisers set for Monday.

House Republican veterans were hosting a breakfast fundraiser for their 13 freshmen. U.S. Sen. Al Franken was headlining an afternoon event for House Democrats from targeted districts. And the House and Senate Democratic caucuses, set to assume respective majorities on Tuesday, planned a high-dollar event at a swanky Minneapolis hotel on Monday night.
