FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- State Sen. Glenn Grothman has raised nearly $138,000 for his campaign for the Wisconsin congressional seat now held by retiring Republican Rep. Tom Petri.

A campaign finance report filed late Tuesday shows Grothman received about $135,000 in individual donations and about $3,000 from political action committees. He also has loaned his campaign $10,000 of his own money.

Grothman faces a four-way Republican primary on Aug. 12 with State Sen. Joe Leibham , state Rep. Duey Stroebel and Tom Denow, a technical college instructor.

Leibham and Stroebel both brought at least $300,000 during the quarter that ended June 30. A report for Denow has not yet been posted by the Federal Election Commission.

Grothman spent about $77,000 to end the quarter with $70,000 in cash on hand.
