BISMARCK - Rep. Earl Pomeroy raised $407,974 in campaign contributions during the first quarter of 2010, according to the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party.

Pomeroy now has more than $1.6 million in cash on hand to use in his re-election bid this year. He has accumulated that money throughout nine terms as North Dakota's Democratic congressman.

"My campaign has attracted a remarkable outpouring of support, and for that I am so grateful," Pomeroy said in a prepared statement. "This will clearly be a tough campaign, but at the end of the day, North Dakotans will compare my opponent's record to my record of fighting for the priorities that matter for our state."

GOP House challenger Rick Berg announced Monday he had raised nearly $383,000 - the most any challenger against Pomeroy raised in first-quarter contributions since at least 1996.

Berg loaned his campaign an additional $100,000 and has nearly $323,800 in cash on hand so far to spend on the race.
