Racine, WI – The Randy Bryce for Congress campaign released the results of their fundraising efforts thus far in the second quarter of 2018, today. So far in this quarter the campaign has raised $700,000, and has nearly $2.5 million cash on hand. With $5.5 million raised since the campaign’s launch, the Bryce campaign has raised more than any other Democrat running for Wisconsin’s First Congressional District in the last twenty years, with 6 months still to go. The majority of those donations came in from small contributions, with an average contribution of $25. The campaign also dramatically grew its number of donors for a total of 121,000 total donors. Since Ryan’s decision to not run for re-election, fundraising efforts for Bryce’s insurgent campaign have remained strong.

“Some political observers thought Ryan’s departure would cause Randy’s fundraising to dry up, but our continued strength proves that this race isn’t about D.C. insiders — it’s about the working people our broken political system has left behind,” said Bryce’s campaign manager, David Keith. “This is because our campaign was never just about beating Paul Ryan — since day one Randy’s message of building a bigger table has resonated with working families across the district. We’ve been on air throughout the district for over two months and have a uniquely strong field program that communicates with voters every day. These factors, coupled with our campaign’s strong fundraising, should make the GOP very, very scared.”
