Nicholson outraised Vukmir in Q2, but Vukmir had more money in bank

Kevin Nicholson outraised GOP U.S. Senate rival Leah Vukmir in the second quarter, according to their campaign finance filings.

But Vukmir, a state senator, had more in the bank than the business consultant and former Marine. Nicholson also raised slightly less during the three-month period than he did in the first quarter of 2018.

Vukmir’s report shows the state senator from Brookfield listed $668,788 in receipts, $489,552 in expenses and $816,917 in the bank.

Nicholson, meanwhile, raised just more than $1 million, spent just less than $1.1 million and had $769,514 cash on hand. He also listed $25,000 in debts for a loan he gave the campaign.

Nicholson’s campaign previously announced he raised more than $1 million, but didn’t offer other details of his effort during the three-month period. The new report shows he took in about $74,000 less during the second quarter than in the first quarter of 2018.

Vukmir, meanwhile, raised slightly more in the second quarter after taking in $583,117 during the first three months of the year.

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s second-quarter report had not yet posted to the FEC site as of this afternoon. But she previously announced raising $4.4 million and finishing June with $7.2 million in the bank.
