7 / 17 GROTHMAN TRAILS TWO OPPONENTS IN CAMPAIGN FUND RAISING

State Senator Glen Grothman was the first candidate to announce that he would be a challenger in the sixth congressional race and got in at a time when Tom Petri said he would seek another term, However, despite that fact, as of a report filing deadline on Tuesday, records show he has raised about half of what his two opponents Joe Leibham and Duey Stroebel did. State Senator Joe Leibham and state Rep. Duey Stroebel have each raised more than $300,000 in their bids for Congress, with most of Stroebel's money coming from his own pocket.
In reports filed Tuesday, they each more than doubled the $147,638 raised by State Senator Glenn Grothman.Stroebel, of Saukville, announced his candidacy on April 12. From then until June 30, he raised $368,206, his report shows. Almost all of it $341,940 came from his personal wealth. Leibham, of Sheboygan got in the race April 22. He raised $302,941 from then until June 30, including $10,000 he personally lent his campaign, according to his report. The winner of the Aug. 12 Republican primary will face Winnebago County Executive Mark Harris in the November fourth general election to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, a Fond du Lac Republican. Harris, a Democrat, had far less than the Republicans. He raised $37,320 from the time he got in the race April 22 through June 30 and had $25,153 on hand at the end of last month, according to his report.
