Rebecca Kleefisch was proud to announce that she leads the Republican Lieutenant field in fundraising in the first six months of 2010. Kleefisch, who began her campaign on January 19th of this year, has raised $141,634.58 in the first six months, 27% more than her nearest competitor.
“I am truly humbled by the tremendous outpouring of financial support I have received from every corner of our great state,” said Kleefisch. “I am not a professional politician, I am a parent and small business owner concerned about the direction of our state. I really appreciate the donations I have received from regular folks who have never been involved in a campaign before.”
“Families all across Wisconsin are responding to our message of bringing fiscal discipline and kitchen table common sense back to state government,” said Kleefisch. “The response from our grass roots supporters has been overwhelming. We expect to have enough money to win this race in September.”
An analysis of campaign finance reports filed before today’s deadline shows Kleefisch has so far raised $141,634.58; Davis, $111,169.21; Ross, $13,809.41, and Lorge, $2006.90. Kleefisch is winning the money race with less than 60 days remaining before the September 14 primary election.
