House Speaker Paul Ryan has more than $10.4 million cash on hand for his re-election effort.
Ryan’s campaign reported Thursday that he raised $300,000 over the past three months and also transferred $2 million from his national political organization.
Ryan’s Democratic opponent, Randy Bryce, said he raised just over $1 million between July and September and had more than $1 million cash on hand.
Bryce, a union ironworker, has been aggressively fundraising nationally in an attempt to take down Ryan, R-Janesville, who has represented southeastern Wisconsin since 1999.
Meanwhile, Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, of Madison, said Thursday that she has raised $2.4 million over the past three months, setting a torrid pace for fundraising in what promises to be an expensive and hotly contested race.
Baldwin’s two Republican challengers raised less over the same three months, but only one of them was in the race the entire quarter. Delafield businessman Kevin Nicholson got into the race in late June and raised $400,000. State Sen. Leah Vukmir, of Brookfield, raised $250,000 in three weeks.
Baldwin has raised $7.1 million this year and has $5.3 million cash on hand.
The election is in November 2018.
