Baldwin campaign says it raised $6 million in third quarter
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin's campaign says it raised $6 million in the third quarter and has $5 million in cash on hand heading into the home stretch of her re-election campaign.
Baldwin campaign manager Scott Spector said in a statement Monday that her online donations averaged $19, with over 140,000 individual contributions including over 32,000 first-time donors. The campaign says it will use the money on field organizing and advertising.
Polls show Baldwin leading GOP challenger Leah Vukmir, a state senator who has not yet released her third-quarter fundraising numbers.
As of the previous filing deadline in July, Baldwin had raised a total of $23 million and had $7 million in cash on hand, while Vukmir had raised $2 million and had $530,000 in cash on hand.
