Two Democratic challengers have financial edge in recall elections

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic challengers in two recall elections have raised more money than the Republican incumbents and have more cash on hand.

Reports filed with the Government Accountability Board late Tuesday night show that Democrat Nancy Nusbaum outraised GOP incumbent Sen. Rob Cowles of Green Bay through the first half of the year.

Nusbaum raised $177,000 compared with $100,000 for Cowles. She has $134,000 cash on hand and he has just $62,000.

In the 14th District, Democratic state Rep. Fred Clark of Baraboo raised $227,000 compared with $107,000 for Republican Sen. Luther Olsen of Ripon. Clark had $163,000 cash on hand compared with just $71,000 for Olsen.

In four other recalls targeting Republicans, the incumbents all raised more than the challengers. However, in two of them the Democrat had more cash now.
