U.S. Rep. Matt Rosendale maintains his lopsided fundraising lead over 10 other candidates for Montana’s U.S. House District.

Campaign finance reports for the first quarter of 2022, show Montana’s current at-large representative with more than $1 million cash on hand. Rosendale raised $199,000 in contributions in the first three months of the year, but also picked up $24,000 from PACs and transfers from other campaign committees.

This is Rosendale’s third U.S. House campaign. He has also been a losing candidate in a high-stakes U.S. Senate race. His fundraising machine has a sophistication the other candidates in the race don’t have.

By contrast, the remaining candidates in the race reported a combined $106,794.73 cash on hand. Two of the candidates, Republicans James Boyette and Kyle Austin reported no cash available. A Third Republican, Charles Walkingchild didn’t file a report.

Boyette did raise $400 in donations and received $1,850 in PAC money, but ended the quarter with a negative $2,218 on the books.
