RACINE, WI – Today, the Randy Bryce for Congress campaign released the results of their fundraising efforts in the second quarter of 2018. The campaign raised $1.2 million and has well over $2 million cash on hand. With nearly $6.05 million raised since the campaign’s launch, the Bryce campaign has raised more than any other Democrat running for Wisconsin’s First Congressional District in the past 20 years, with 4 months still to go. The majority of those donations came from small contributions, with an average contribution of $25. Since Ryan’s decision to not run for re-election, fundraising efforts for Bryce’s insurgent campaign have remained strong.
“When Paul Ryan dropped out of the race in the second week of April, some thought our fundraising would dry up– but Randy has a people powered campaign that is supported by hundreds of thousands of low dollar donations from hard working people across the district and the country. With nearly $6 million dollars raised, Randy’s campaign is giving a voice to the working people that our broken political system has left behind,” said communications director Julia Savel. “We’ve been on air throughout the district since the second week of March and have a strong grassroots program that communicates with voters every day. These factors, coupled with our campaign’s strong fundraising, has the GOP running scared.”
