Beer and Defense Contractors fund Kline campaign

Rep. John Kline (R- MN 2nd District) is apparently a little more secure in his position this year. He's raised a little more than half of what he raised by this time in 2003. ($117,075 vs. $218,787) But the sources for Kline's contributions remain the same. Alcohol (National Beer Wholesalers Association - $5,000) and defense contractors (Aliant, Lockheed Martin, US Defense PAC and others).

Perhaps he isn't expecting much of a fight in the 2nd Congressional District in 2006. In 2004 he raised and mostly spent $1.5 million on the campaign. His opponent Theresa Daly raised and spent about $1.1 million . She's apparently running again having already raised about $50,000.
