Tammy Baldwin’s Record-Breaking Grassroots Fundraising Continues Ahead of Home Stretch of Campaign

Tens of thousands of supporters build massive $6 million Q3 with average $19 online contribution

MADISON — Tammy Baldwin for Senate yet again broke Wisconsin fundraising records ahead of the home stretch of the campaign, recording a massive $6 million third quarter, with $5 million cash-on-hand, driven by grassroots online donations averaging $19.  

“A grassroots army of supporters have chipped in an average of $19 online to break Wisconsin fundraising records and put Tammy Baldwin’s campaign in a commanding position ahead of the home stretch,” said Scott Spector, Tammy Baldwin for Senate Campaign Manager. “This groundswell of individual supporters shows how this election is a clear choice between Tammy Baldwin — who always puts Wisconsinites first — and Leah Vukmir, who is backed by shadowy special interests because she always does their bidding.”

The Tammy Baldwin for Senate campaign has broken records for a federal candidate in Wisconsin every quarter of the cycle so far. The $6 million Q3 was driven by an average $19 online donation and over 140,000 individual contributions, with over 32,000 new supporters giving for the first time this campaign.

The $5 million cash-on-hand ahead of the final weeks of the campaign will allow Tammy Baldwin for Senate to continue building on its unprecedented field organizing operation and successful advertising campaign that has set the tone of the debate: Tammy Baldwin is standing up to special interests and Leah Vukmir is not for Wisconsin.

The campaign’s ads have focused on protecting affordable health care (Ashamed, What Would Happen, Both Sides), strengthening our manufacturing economy (Roddy, Predator, Map Made, Fierce), supporting Wisconsin farmers (Cheesy, They Call It), combating the opioid crisis (Knock, Stories), standing up for veterans with Jason’s Law (Heather, Marv & Linda) and highlighting Leah Vukmir’s ties to the corporate special interest group ALEC (Shadowy, Really, Secret).
