Between Feb. 19 and March 30, Trenk raised $11,885 and spent $4,118, and has taken in a total of $17,381 in campaign contributions, including $2,200 of his own funds.

Trenk's opponents are Jim Bruce and Thomas McGuire.

According to an article by Beth Duckett, a reporter for The Arizona Republic, Trenk said that he hadn't expected to "garner so much money."
