(Oshkosh, WI) – State Sen. Glenn Grothman’s campaign outraised his opponent Joe Leibham by over $18,000 in the most recent fundraising period, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission. Grothman’s cash on hand at the end of the period was within $12,000 of Leibham.
Brandon VerVelde, Communications Director for Grothman’s campaign, released the following statement on the fundraising numbers:
“The momentum in this race is clearly behind our campaign. This is a huge victory for Glenn Grothman and a stunning defeat for the Leibham campaign. Meanwhile, Duey Stroebel is facing fierce backlash on conservative talk radio over his ridiculous attack ad against Grothman, with Charlie Sykes calling the ad ‘repugnant and dishonest’ and Mark Belling saying the ad is ‘a load of crap.’
“It’s become crystal clear that Glenn Grothman is the frontrunner and favorite to win this race. We hear every day from voters responding to Glenn’s positive message and his proven, conservative record.”
Grothman is a Republican candidate for Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District. He currently represents the 20th Senate District in the Wisconsin State Senate. The 6th Congressional District includes the counties of Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Winnebago, Dodge, Green Lake, Manitowoc, Marquette, Columbia, Waushara, and Milwaukee.
