U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s campaign says she raised $2.2 million over the first three months of the year and finished the quarter with $2.4 million in the bank.
The campaign said it did not yet have a coversheet for the period. But the Madison Dem, a top GOP target in 2018, finished 2016 with nearly $1.1 million cash on hand. That puts her spending for the three months at roughly $900,000.
The haul was a dramatic uptick for Baldwin compared to the past two years, a period when her biggest fundraising period was $565,063. It’s also one of her best reports going back to her 2012 race for then then-open seat. She raised $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2012, her best performance, and reported just less than $2.4 million raised on her post-general report, which covered Oct. 18, 2012, through Nov. 26, 2012.
