Iowa Republicans are excited about Brenna Findley’s campaign to be Iowa’s Attorney General. You can see the excitement when she is speaking to groups across the state, and that excitements can also be seen in her fundraising report.

Findley raised $124,077.80 in the first five months of 2010, and has $95,528.32 cash on hand. Her opponent, Attorney General Tom Miller only raised $15,748.00 and has $105,457.69. Miller was first elected Iowa’s Attorney General in 1978.

Findley’s ability to out-raise an entrenched incumbent like Miller is impressive. Not only is the $124,000 raised impressive, but her campaign also has over 700 donors. Her strong fundraising shows that Iowans are ready for a new Attorney General. Her groundbreaking campaign shows that she has an active, engaged operation throughout the state.

The political environment is also tailor-made for Findley. Not only is she running against an entrenched incumbent, but she is also running in a year when people are talking about state’s rights in response to immigration and healthcare laws that have been passed.

Findley is a conservative fireball that will give Miller fits. Frankly, I’m shocked to see how little he raised. It looks like he didn’t take Findley seriously. I’m sure all of that changed yesterday when he saw her dollars raised.
