MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin outraised her Republican opponent, state Sen. Leah Vukmir, more than 2-to-1 in the most recent reporting period.
While outpacing Vukmir in fundraising, Baldwin has also had a consistent lead in polls leading up to the election scheduled for Nov. 6.
Filings with the Federal Election Commission show Baldwin raised $4.9 million in the latest period, which ended Sept. 30. Vukmir had $2.4 million.
Baldwin reported having $5 million worth of cash on hand for the final weeks of the race. Vukmir had $1.4 million.
Vukmir released a new television ad on Tuesday, featuring a woman with a rare lung disease who says Baldwin’s position on health care “is so radical it literally takes my breath away.”
Baldwin supports a Medicaire-for-all plan whereas Vukmir wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
