Jason Church outraised rival Tom Tiffany in the most recent reporting period ahead of the 7th CD GOP primary later this month.
But Tiffany finished the period with more in the bank for the final push, and he’s raised more money overall, according to their filings with the FEC.
Tiffany, a state senator from Minocqua, raised $477,165 between Oct. 1 and Jan. 29, spent $510,202 and had $207,912 in the bank at the close of the period. Since getting into the race in September, he’s now raised $719,465.
Church, a former aide to U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and a retired Army captain, raised $658,575 for the reporting period, which covers all of his fundraising activity since getting into the race. He spent $469,441 and had $189,134 in the bank at the end of January.
The two will square off in the Feb. 18 primary for the northern Wisconsin seat.
On the Dem side, Tricia Zunker, president of the Wausau School Board and an associate justice of the Ho-Chunk Nation Supreme Court, reported $145,066 in receipts on her report. She also spent $81,204 and had $63,862 in the bank at the end of Jan. 29.
In the Feb. 18 primary, Zunker will face businessman Lawrence Dale, whose report wasn’t filed at the FEC site as of this morning. Reports were due at the end of Thursday.
