Tuesday’s report came following the announcement that Gov. Evers ended the year with $10.5 million in the bank after having raised more than $5 million in the second half of 2021 – the most ever raised by any Wisconsin governor in the year prior to an election. Gov. Evers’ record-breaking cash-on-hand total is twice as much as what Scott Walker had on hand at this point in both 2014 and 2018 ahead of his re-election campaigns and significantly more than his challenger, Rebecca Kleefisch.

Also this week, Attorney General Josh Kaul reported ending 2021 with more than $1 million on hand – crushing the two declared Republican candidates, who are currently mired in a messy and bitter primary fight. Attorney General Kaul reported having 26 times more on hand than his closest opponent.

“This November, we’re re-electing Gov. Evers and Attorney General Kaul and defeating Ron Johnson – and we’ll have the resources to do it,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin interim executive director Devin Remiker. “These totals reflect a grassroots enthusiasm for electing Democrats and continuing our work towards a more fair, more prosperous Wisconsin. Voters know that Democrats are the party of families, working people and progress, and this tremendous show of support means we can do the work of telling our story, organizing everywhere and protecting the freedom of every Wisconsinite to vote.”
