— Republicans are now on pace to outspend Dems over the final week of the Senate race as some late money flowed into the contest between U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and Dem Mandela Barnes.

A check of AdImpact data Tuesday afternoon showed Dems had $5.1 million reserved, compared to $4.2 million by Republicans.

Updated data this morning showed Republicans are now poised to spend $7.2 million over the final week, compared to $5.8 million by Dems.

The Dem-aligned Senate Majority PAC was ready to spend nearly $2.8 million over the last week, while Barnes had more than $2.4 million reserved.

The other biggest spenders were: the pro-Johnson Wisconsin Truth PAC at more than $2.4 million; the GOP-aligned Senate Leadership Fund was at just less than $2.4 million; and Johnson at $1.7 million.

Johnson and the NRSC had joint buys worth more than $517,000.
