Baldwin raises $3.7 million in Q1, says it’s record haul

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison, raised $3.7 million over the first three months of the year for her re-election bid.

Her campaign said it was the best ever fundraising haul in the first-quarter of an election year for a federal candidate from Wisconsin.

Baldwin’s fundraising helped push her cash on hand to $7.8 million. Her campaign did not release how much she spent during the the three-month period. But she ended 2017 with just under $7 million cash on hand. That means she spent about three-fourths of what she raised.

The period included a TV buy the campaign said in late March would run in four of the state’s media markets.

GOP U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson announced he raised more than $1 million during the first three months of the year and will report more than $800,000 cash on hand. Meanwhile, Republican candidate Leah Vukmir, a state senator from Brookfield, has not yet announced how much she raised during the period.
