Democratic Gov. Tony Evers accepted $20,000 contributions from about three-dozen individuals and about $1 million from the state Democratic Party en route to raising $5 million in the first half of 2021.

The governor’s campaign finance report covering fundraising and spending between January and June showed he accepted almost $3.1 million in total individual contributions and more than $1.9 million from political action committees (PACs) and political committees.

His campaign spent just shy of $1.1 million and had more than $7.3 million in the bank as of June 30.

Evers’s top contributor in the first half of 2021 was the state Democratic Party, which gave his campaign $1,010,000. That follows about $2.2 million in contributions to Evers from the state party last year.

Evers’s other top PAC and political committee contributors between January and June were:

Democratic Governors Association, $86,000,

American Federation of Teachers, $86,000,

Engineers Political Education Committee, $86,000,

Laborers International Union of North America, $86,000.
