GREENDALE, WI — On July 15th, Jacob Malinowski reported raising $26,700 from individual contributions in the first 74 days of his campaign – almost three times what his Republican opponent raised.
“To me, these fundraising numbers are just one step on our path to victory on August 11th and November 3rd,” said Jacob. “Folks are looking for passionate leadership with real ideas, and I’m so excited to provide that alternative and continue earning votes here in the 82nd.”
Wisconsin’s 82nd Assembly District was not on anyone’s radar – Democrat or Republican – heading into the 2020 election cycle. A Democrat has not represented the 82nd since 1998, and Rep. Ken Skowronski has not faced a serious challenger in seven years. But Judge Jill Karofsky lost by only 200 votes in 2020, and many recognize this as a community that votes based on candidate quality, not political party.
“We expect to get more outside attention now, but one thing won’t change: people here respect a good work ethic and people-first ideas, and Jacob is the only candidate offering both,” said campaign manager Nick Famularo.
The 82nd district includes the southwest Milwaukee suburbs of Franklin, Greendale, and Greenfield.
