Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), who is running for the open Democratic-held Senate seat in this nationally watched swing state, announced strong fundraising totals for the final quarter of 2011.
Baldwin’s campaign announced via Facebook:
Tammy is thrilled by the enormous outpouring of support for her campaign to fight for WI’s middle class. Thanks to you, we raised over $1.1 mil last quarter. Tammy now has $1.8+ mil cash-on-hand to share her message. This shows our strength, and these resources will be critical in responding to the false, negative right-wing attacks sure to come our way. Thank you to our more than 16,000 individual donors!
Baldwin is the presumptive Democratic nominee. On the Republican side, there is a heated primary between former Gov. Tommy Thompson, former Rep. Mark Neumann, and current state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, which will be held in August.
