Democratic Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul has raised nearly $860,000 over the first half of the year and has more than $1.9 million cash on hand for his reelection bid this fall
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul raised nearly $860,000 over the first half of the year and reported having more than $1.9 million cash on hand for his reelection bid this fall.
Kaul's fundraising was nearly double that of one of his Republican rivals. Former state Rep. Adam Jarchow said he raised more than $445,000 over the first six months of the year. Jarchow, of Balsam Lake, had about $208,000 cash on hand.
Jarchow raised more than four times as much as his main Republican rival, Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney. Toney reported raising $102,000 and having $83,000 cash on hand. Chippewa Falls attorney Karen Mueller is also running a longshot campaign.
The winner of the Aug. 9 Republican primary will advance to take on Kaul in November.
