Ryan outraises House candidates, Obey sends almost $450,000 to Dems

Republican Paul Ryan is a heavy favorite to win re-election to his southeastern House seat this fall.

But that didn't stop him from raising $655,530 between Aug. 26 and Sept. 30, the most of any Wisconsin House candidate for the period.

In the state's lone open congressional district, northern Wisconsin's 7th CD, Dem state Sen. Julie Lass of Stevens Point raised $319,977 and spent $383,894, leaving her $338,998 cash on hand. Her GOP opponent Sean Duffy of Ashland reported raising $274,079 and spending $326,357, ending the period with a warchest of $645,514.

The two are battling to replace longtime U.S. Rep. Dave Obey, D-Wausau. Obey reported disbursing $479,605 between July 1 and Sept. 30, the bulk of it a $360,000 donation to the Wisconsin Democratic Party and $50,000 to the DCCC.

Obey, who still had $504,799 in the bank, also gave $10,000 to the DPW-Unity Fund, $16,000 to 19 county Dem parties in the district and $13,200 to fellow Dem House candidates. That includes $2,400 each to Dem incumbents Steve Kagen of Appleton and Ron Kind of La Crosse.

His donations to Dems during the period totaled close to $450,000.

In the state’s other closely watched House races, Kind outraised and outspent his opponent Dan Kapanke while Kagen was outraised in the period by GOP challenger Reid Ribble, now favored by many to win.

And in the U.S. Senate race, numbers showed GOP candidate Ron Johnson spending a total of $8.6 million -- a lot of his own money -- so far in trying to unseat incumbent Dem Russ Feingold.

Here’s a rundown of the various federal races:

-- In addition to his big fundraising haul, Ryan spent $134,467 and had $2.79 million cash on hand; he's the overwhelming favorite in the 1st CD against Dem John Heckenlively of Racine, who did not have a report filed.

-- Kagen raised $226,008, spent $609,936 spent and had $393,304 cash on hand. The wealthy allergist hasn't put any of his own money into his campaign this cycle, according to his latest report. Ribble, a roofing contractor, raised $309,371, spent $88,997 and had $318,626 cash on hand.

-- Kind raised $243,993, spent $720,942 and had $796,011 cash on hand in his 3rd CD race. Kapanke, a GOP state senator from LaCrosse, raised $113,818, spent $397,244 and had $38,525 cash on hand.

-- U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison, reported $35,878 raised, $14,571 spent and $780,298 cash on hand. GOP Mt. Horeb small businessman Chad Lee reported $12,740 raised, $13,989 spent and $7,632 in the bank as he challenges the longtime 2nd District incumbent.

-- In the heavily Dem 4th CD, incumbent Gwen Moore of Milwaukee reported $69,566 raised, $51,313 spent and $61,953 cash on hand. She'll face Milwaukee Republican Dan Sebring, who raised $9,491 and spent $11,792. He had just $4,507 cash on hand.

-- U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Menomonee Falls, reported raising $68,362 and spending $45,975 toward a warchest of $399,185 in the 5th CD. Sensenbrenner is also a heavy favorite in his race, where he faces Menomonee Falls Dem Todd Kolosso, who had no report filed.

-- U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac, raised $42,516, spent $15,682 and reported $940,504 cash on hand. Princeton Dem Joseph Kallas reported raising $5,688 in his effort against the longtime 6th CD incumbent. Kallas spent $2,731 for a cash balance of $3,247.

In the Senate race, Feingold outraised Johnson among individual donors over the period and reported a larger cash balance. But the Oshkosh plastics company owner continues to pour his own money into the campaign.

Feingold, D-Middleton, raised $3.3 million in the period and had a warchest of $3.5 million, according to his campaign.

Johnson loaned his campaign another $2.36 million of his own money, bringing his total personal contributions to more than $6.7 million. Johnson reported raising another $2.1 million from contributors during the latest period and spent $4.1 million. He reported nearly $2 million cash on hand.
