Campaign Raised Record-Breaking $3.6 Million In First Half of 2022

[Waukesha, WI] – Rebecca Kleefisch raised more than $7 million since entering the race for governor – the most ever raised by a Wisconsin gubernatorial challenger. In the first half of 2022, she raised more than $3.6 million, exceeding the amount she raised in her initial fundraising report filed in January.

“As a middle-class mom, I’m thankful for the grassroots conservatives who continue to invest in our campaign because I am the only candidate with a proven record to get Wisconsin back on track,” Rebecca Kleefisch said. “The broad statewide support for our campaign will defeat Tony Evers this fall.”

Rebecca’s $3.6 million-dollar raise far surpasses all of the Democratic challengers for governor in 2018 combined. The number also exceeds Scott Walker’s July fundraising report in July 2010. Her historic July report comes after she reported one of the largest initial finance hauls by a gubernatorial challenger in Wisconsin history.

Rebecca’s campaign for governor pulls broad financial support from all 72 Wisconsin counties.
