Thompson Raises Over $2.2 Million Since The Primary,
Nearly $2 Million Cash On Hand
With $3.6 Million Raised in 3rd Quarter Thompson in
Strong Position heading into Final Stretch
Madison, WI - The Tommy Thompson campaign today announced it raised more than $2.2 million since the August 14 primary. With nearly $2 million cash on hand, Thompson is in a strong financial position with less than 25 days to go until Election Day. Thompson's fundraising shows strong grassroots support, with more than 63 percent of his donations $100 or less and his donors representing all 72 counties in Wisconsin.
"Governor Thompson's strong fundraising numbers are a clear indication that his message of job creation, lower taxes and government reform is resonating with voters across the state," said spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. "It is also evidence that Wisconsinites are rejecting Madison liberal Tammy Baldwin's record of higher taxes, excessive spending and more government. With nearly $2 million cash on hand, Thompson is in a strong financial position heading into Election Day."
