State Superintendent Tony Evers’ campaign says he raised $217,616 in the run-up to the April 4 election, 2.5 times the amount challenger Lowell Holtz raised over the same period.

The campaign also said he’ll report $74,634 in cash on hand.

Holtz, meanwhile, gathered $86,931 from Feb. 9 to March 20, according to his filing with the Ethics Commission.

Holtz’s report, filed yesterday, shows he spent $72,214 over the period and has $30,038 in cash on hand heading into the April 4 general.

It also shows Holtz received a total of $25,000 from longtime conservative donors Richard and Liz Uihlein, as well as $5,000 from the Milwaukee County Republican Party and $2,500 from the Oneida County Republican Party.
