MIDDLETON - In an impressive display of grassroots support, Russ Feingold's campaign reported raising over $2.3 million in their quarterly Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing due today. Thousands of grassroots donors propelled Feingold to one of the strongest showings of any Senate candidate in the nation and over $2 million cash on hand, despite entering the race midway through the fundraising period.

"The grassroots support this campaign has received to start this campaign is almost overwhelming," said Russ Feingold. "From this report to the campaign trail, the enthusiasm and support I've seen from Wisconsin reinforces my commitment to listen to and fight for all Wisconsinites."

By The Numbers – Russ for Wisconsin's 2nd Quarter Fundraising

  • Raised $2,341,968.64
  • Reports $2,036,995.59 Cash on Hand
  • Over 11,500 individual donors from across the state of Wisconsin
  • Donors from all 72 counties gave within the first five days of the campaign.

"Russ Feingold was able to out-raise Senator Ron Johnson despite being a declared candidate for just six weeks. That shows both the enthusiasm that Wisconsinites have for Russ's candidacy and how ready people are to be done with out-of-touch Republicans like Ron Johnson," said campaign manager Tom Russell. "Our campaign is proud to have support from all 72 of Wisconsin's counties and thousands of Wisconsin donors who know Russ Feingold listens to their concerns and is ready to deliver results."

Russ for Wisconsin filed the report electronically. It will be available through the FEC website after being processed.

walker_wavesMADISON - Following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning on Scott Walker’s announcement for president.

“Scott Walker’s record in Wisconsin is one of unprecedented corruption, division, extremism and a failure to foster economic growth and opportunity.

“And now, with wages in Wisconsin stagnant, job growth that’s dead last in the Midwest and trailing most of the nation, a flagship jobs agency that’s known more for scandal than economic development, and a $2.2 billion budget deficit created by his failed policies, Scott Walker wants to take that record nationwide.

martha-laning“It’s clear that Walker’s vision for America is one that fights against the middle class so he can win for special interests and a select few millionaires and billionaires. This is the same kind of ‘divide and conquer’ strategy that has Wisconsin reeling because Scott Walker has put his political ambitions ahead of what’s best for Wisconsin.

“Scott Walker offers nothing new and nothing fresh; he simply offers to double down on the same failed economic policies that caused our economy to crater in the first place. But Scott Walker isn’t just a retread on the economy – his record of extremism on women’s rights, healthcare, education, and civil rights is unparalleled in modern times and is dangerously out of touch with what a majority of Americans believe.

“Wisconsin knows the real Scott Walker and the damage his brand of failure can do. We’re confident the rest of the country will recognize Scott Walker for who he really is -- someone who is unfit to lead.”
