Brookfield, Wis. — U.S. Senate Candidate Leah Vukmir, R–Brookfield, announced Wednesday that nearly 75% of the money she raised in her first three weeks in the race came from Wisconsin donors.

“It’s clear that Wisconsinites want a proven conservative fighter to represent them in DC,” Leah said. “We’re sick of sitting by and seeing reform after reform fail in the U.S. Senate, and it’s time to make sure Wisconsin’s junior senator will vote for President Trump’s agenda. I’m proud that my campaign is being funded by Wisconsin conservatives, not out-of-state special interests.”

“When I get to the Senate I won’t accept excuses or lack of results on issues the American people care about, like repealing and replacing Obamacare, reforming our tax code, and ending illegal immigration. When I get to Washington I will be a conservative fighter just like I have been here at home.”

Leah announced earlier in October that she raised nearly $250,000 in the first three weeks of her campaign. Leah jumped into the U.S. Senate race on Sept. 7. She previously released a list of prominent members of her finance committee, which is viewable here. She also announced the members of her campaign steering committee, which can be found here.

Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record of reform who is running to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington. She currently serves as a state senator from Brookfield.
