JANESVILLE, Wis. – First Congressional District candidate Bryan Steil’s campaign in less than six months has caught up to cash on hand with his Democratic opponent.
Andrew Iverson, Campaign Spokesman: “In less than six months, Bryan Steil has caught up in cash on hand to Randy Bryce who has raised over $7 million, most of which came from out of state. While Randy Bryce raises money in New York City tonight, Bryan Steil today announced that 75 percent of donors supporting his campaign are from Wisconsin. The contrast could not be more clear. The people of Southeast Wisconsin are ready to send a problem solver to Congress.”
Steil’s campaign earlier reported raising $1 million in the third quarter and having over $631,000 cash on hand, with 75 percent of his donors being from Wisconsin. Randy Bryce has raised nearly $7.4 million in 15 months but has just $656,000 cash on hand according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. Media reports previously noted Steil’s opponent has raised 90 percent of his donations from out of state.
Bryan Steil won the Republican nomination for the First Congressional District on August 14 with over 51 percent of the vote in a five-way contest. Steil is running for Congress to fight for American workers and prepare our workforce for the jobs of the future. Steil is a member of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and has a strong background as a business leader. For the past nine years, Steil has worked for manufacturing companies in Rock County and has learned the importance of fiscal discipline and risks of government red tape. Steil was born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, where he currently lives.
