House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, announced today he had $1.4 million in receipts during the final three months of 2017 and finished the year with about $9.7 million in the bank.
Of the $1.4 million, more than $270,000 was raised directly into the campaign, while the rest was transfers from Team Ryan, the speaker’s joint fundraising committee.
His cash on hand was down slightly from the end of October, when he had $10.4 million in the bank. He also had $2.3 million in receipts during the third quarter, though almost $2 million of that was transfers from other committees.
Ryan challenger Randy Bryce, a Racine iron worker, announced earlier this month he had $1.2 million in receipts during the fourth quarter of 2017. Meanwhile, fellow Dem Cathy Myers raised $182,656 for the period.
