Republican Kleefisch raises $3.6 million in 6 months
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Kleefisch says Thursday her campaign has raised more than $3.6 million over the first six months of the year.
She is the top candidate along with -funder Tim Michels, who has spent millions on television ads that almost immediately put him in a tight race for the nomination.
Michels is endorsed by Donald Trump and co-owns the state's largest construction company Michels Corp. He has not yet filed his fundraising report that is due Friday.
A third candidate, state Rep. Tim Ramthun, has also not filed. The winner of the Aug. 9 primary will advance to face Democratic Gov. Tony Evers.
