MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin state Assembly Republicans have outraised their Democratic counterparts so far this year and have more than three times as much cash on hand.
Reports filed Monday show the Republican Assembly Campaign Committee raised nearly $223,000 over the first six months of 2013. That compares with just $119,000 raised by Democrats over the same time.
But Democrats spent four times as much money as Republicans in the first half of the year. Assembly Republicans report having $270,000 cash on hand compared with just $73,000 for Assembly Democrats.
The Committee to Elect a Republican Senate says it raised about $153,000 through June and had nearly $124,000 on hand. Senate Democrats had yet to file their report.
The fundraising covers the period the Legislature was considering passage of the state budget.
