SIOUX FALLS | Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Rick Weiland has raised nearly $204,000 during the first three months of 2014 for his campaign to win the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Tim Johnson.

Weiland's FEC report shows he spent slightly more than $103,000 and had about $485,000 cash on hand as of March 31. His report shows campaign debt of nearly $109,000.

Weiland is a Sioux Falls business owner who once served as a staffer for former U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle. He's the sole Democratic candidate.

Five are seeking the GOP nomination: former Gov. Mike Rounds, state Sen. Larry Rhoden of Union Center, state Rep. Stace Nelson of Fulton, Sioux Falls physician Annette Bosworth and Yankton attorney and soldier Jason Ravnsborg.

Former U.S. Sen. Larry Pressler is running as an independent.
