Kind spends most among House candidates in pre-general election period

A tougher-than-expected re-election race has forced western Wisconsin Dem Congressman Ron Kind to blow all other state congressional candidates away in campaign spending during the latest campaign finance reporting period.

According to reports due Thursday to the Federal Election Commission, Kind spent $541,664 during the period spanning Oct. 1-13 -- well more than the roughly $300,000 reported by the second-highest spender, 7th CD Dem candidate and Stevens Point state Sen. Julie Lassa.

Kind reported raising $99,229 during the pre-general election period and had $354,653 cash on hand. GOP opponent Dan Kapanke raised a similar amount over the period -- $97,077 -- but spent a comparatively small $117,108 and had just $18,494 cash on hand.

These reports are close on the heels of quarterly money figures that came out last week. See last Friday's Report for more.

Other Wisconsin fundraising totals include:

1st CD: U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan leads the Wisconsin delegation in both money raised during the first-half-of-October period and cash on hand. The Janesville Republican raised $202,839, spent $113,736 and reported a warchest of more than $2.8 million. He was the only member of the delegation to report a seven-figure cash on hand total. Ryan faces Racine Dem John Heckenlively, who hasn't reported any fundraising activity to the FEC.

2nd CD: U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison, raised $35,878, spent $14,571 and had $780,298 cash on hand in her race against heavy underdog Chad Lee. The Mt. Horeb small businessman reported $15,428 raised and $11,709 spent, with just $9,352 cash on hand.

4th CD: In the state's most partisan-leaning district, U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Milwaukee, reported the lowest fundraising total by an incumbent during the period with $12,795. She reported spending $11,215, with $63,232 cash on hand. Milwaukee Republican Dan Sebring raised $2,335 and spent $4,226; he had $2,617 cash on hand.

5th CD: Longtime Menomonee Falls Republican Jim Sensenbrenner reported raising $19,605 and spending $19,820. He had a cash balance of $398,982. Dem opponent Todd Kolosso, also of Menomonee Falls, hasn't reported any fundraising activity.

6th CD: U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac, reported the second-highest cash balance among the delegation, with $926,891. He raised $30,651 and spent $44,065 during the period. His opponent, Joseph Kallas of Princeton, reported a campaign balance of negative-$1,928 after marginal expenditures and disbursements in the period.

7th CD: Lassa, D-Stevens Point, outspent GOP opponent Sean Duffy during the period but trailed him for cash on hand heading into the final weeks of the campaign. She raised $100,122, spent $300,128 and had $138,991 in the bank. Duffy, of Ashland, reported $578,903 cash on hand after raising $139,756 and spending $206,367.

8th CD: U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen also outspent his opponent despite lagging in fundraising and cash on hand. The Appleton Dem raised $61,040, spent $263,880 and had $190,464 in the bank. De Pere Republican Reid Ribble reported a warchest of $339,455; he raised $144,494 and spent $123,666 over the period.
