More than 33,000 new supporters join the campaign this quarter to stand up to special interests spending more than $10 million to beat Tammy Baldwin
WISCONSIN – Despite facing more outside spending than any Democratic Senator up in 2018, Tammy Baldwin for Senate today announced the campaign raised nearly $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2018, once again shattering previous records for a federal candidate in Wisconsin.
“Wisconsinites continue to support Tammy Baldwin at historic levels because they know that she does right by Wisconsin no matter what it takes, and no matter what powerful interests stand in the way,” said Tammy Baldwin for Senate campaign manager Scott Spector.
The strong second quarter for Tammy Baldwin for Senate was driven by more than 57,000 total grassroots supporters, including 33,000 new supporters this quarter. Over $1 million came in through small online donations, with grassroots donations averaging just $25. The campaign has raised more than $8 million in 2018 alone, with more than $7.2 million cash on hand to help build on its successful ads, “Roddy,” “Skyrocketing,” “Predator,” “Cheesy,” “Knock,” “Stories,” “Fierce,” and “Skills.”
Powerful special interests have already spent more than $10 million to beat Tammy Baldwin, more than any other Democratic Senator up for reelection this year.
