3rd CD campaign spending tops among Wis. House races

Wisconsin's 3rd Congressional District led the state's competitive House elections in campaign spending this fall, with U.S. Rep. Ron Kind spending a robust $2.5 million en route to hanging on to his seat in a difficult year for Democrats.

That total was well more than double his opponent's spending total in the 2010 election cycle. Republican state Sen. Dan Kapanke of La Crosse spent $947,354 during the cycle, according to post-general election campaign finance reports due Thursday to the Federal Election Commission.

For the post-general election period, ranging from Oct. 14 through Nov. 22, Kind, D-La Crosse, reported raising $283,242 and spending $497,788. He ended the cycle with $140,107 cash on hand.

Kapanke reported $129,028 raised, $97,117 spent and $5,409 in the bank at the end of the period.

The 8th CD lagged just behind the 3rd District race, with an incumbent Dem also holding a big spending edge. In that race, however, U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen's financial advantage was unable to overcome De Pere roofing contractor Reid Ribble.

For the full cycle, Kagen, D-Appleton, spent nearly $2.1 million to Ribble's nearly $1.2 million.

Kagen, D-Appleton, raised $160,476, spent $601,288 and banked $34,652. Ribble had a $25,911 warchest after raising $251,618 and spending $578,429 during the period.

And in the 7th CD, former Ashland Co. DA Sean Duffy outspent state Sen. Julie Lassa by more than half a million dollars over the full cycle, ultimately winning the race to replace retiring Dave Obey, D-Wausau.

Duffy, R-Ashland, spent more than $1.7 million in the race; Lassa, D-Stevens Point, spent $1.2 million after announcing her candidacy in May.

Duffy reported raising $349,996, spending $833,886 and a cash balance of $98,218 in the post-general period. Lassa raised $289,209, spent $433,758 and banked $6,183.
