PSC’s Fedorchak raises nearly $80K for campaign

BISMARCK -- North Dakota Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak said she raised nearly $80,000 last year to support her campaign to keep her seat in the 2014 election.

Fedorchak said she would file her 2013 campaign finance disclosure with the secretary of state Tuesday showing that she received $65,333 in contributions greater than $200 from 205 individuals and $14,204 in donations of $200 or less.

“I am extremely pleased with the strong response to my initial fundraising efforts both in terms of the number of donors and the level of the support,” she said in a news release.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple appointed Fedorchak to the commission in January 2013 to replace Rep. Kevin Cramer after he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.

No candidates have stepped forward to challenge Fedorchak.
