  • Average Donation: $74
  • 73% of total dollars raised came from Wisconsin
  • 67% of donors were from Wisconsin
  • Donations received from 68 of 72 WI Counties

In addition to releasing their fundraising numbers, Nelson for Wisconsin released a new video delving into scandals of Tom Nelson’s past that could impact his candidacy.

Campaign manager Irene Lin said, “We are proud to be supported overwhelmingly by small donors in Wisconsin who recognize Tom’s record of progressive leadership in a red county and that we need a U.S. Senator ready to fight for Medicare for all and an economy that puts workers ahead of Wall Street and corporate interests. The Senate is made up of two-thirds millionaires and Tom would be among the lonely one-third who isn’t able to self-fund his campaign. We need more Senators who understand the struggles of everyday Wisconsinites instead of billionaire son-in-law Ron Johnson’s obstructionism that gives tax cuts to the wealthy and denies survival checks during a pandemic.”
