|EAU CLAIRE — Dana Wachs announced this morning that his campaign raised more than $514,000 in 2017. Strong fundraising numbers from the Wachs for Wisconsin campaign were supported by donations from Wisconsinites all across the state.
“I’m humbled by the support from Wisconsin workers and families. I am on the road almost every day meeting more voters, talking to people about the issues that matter most to them, and working to earn their support in the primary and in the general election. I know that we can defeat Walker this November and every donation brings us one step closer to that,” said Wachs.
