(Milwaukee) — Matt Flynn raised money for only 82 days in 2017, following his announcement on October 10th. Today his campaign submitted its first fundraising report to the Wisconsin Ethics Commission’s Campaign Finance Information System.

The report covers October 10th, when Flynn announced, through December 31st. It shows Flynn raised a formidable $350,510.57. The Flynn campaign was also frugal, ending 2017 with $304,971.81 in reserve for the primary and general elections later this year.

Since he began raising funds after the October 10th campaign announcement, Flynn raised an average of $4,274.52 per day.

“We are pleased with our fundraising in 2017, and excited to continue gathering support in 2018,” said Flynn. “I am grateful to our supporters, and I am encouraged by their generosity. Their contributions will help us fight for higher wages, better access to healthcare, better education, good roads, clean water, and most importantly, clean government. After eight years of rampant corruption and dirty politics under Scott Walker, we are going to clean house and move Wisconsin Forward again.”

Matt Flynn is a Navy veteran, attorney, and former Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. He attended law school at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

  1. I appreciate Mr Flynn’s ‘take no prisoners’ approach to Walker. Wisconsin has become a cesspool for extremist politics camouflaged in Republican clothing.
