HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Democrats at the top of a crowded field running for Congress are engaged in a close money battle in advance of the party’s June primary.

State Sen. Kim Gillan of Billings leads the Democrats with cash on hand, holding about $116,000 as crunch time hits. The Democrat raised about $67,000 over the past three months.

State Rep. Franke Wilmer of Bozeman raised about the same amount in the quarter, and holds $90,000 heading into the final two months of primary campaigning.

Political newcomer and businesswoman Diane Smith of Whitefish raised $35,000 in the quarter and holds about $68,000. Missoula city councilman Dave Strohmaier raised $28,000, but only holds $14,000 heading into the stretch run.

Republican businessman Steve Daines of Bozeman leads the entire field with more than $700,000 on hand.
