Incumbents Ribble, Duffy hold cash edge in contested House races

U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble pulled in more than $100,000 for his 8th CD campaign between July 1 and July 25, giving him a cash-on-hand advantage over his Dem opponent.

The freshman Republican from Sherwood reported raising $101,430 and spending $222,218 in his pre-primary report to the Federal Election Commission. He had $875,225 cash on hand at the end of the period.

Dem opponent Jamie Wall, meanwhile, reported raising $24,389, spending $55,255 and having $506,240 cash on hand.

In the other top congressional race this year, 7th CD GOP U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy raised $38,030 and spent $89,040, giving him nearly $1.1 million in the bank at the close of the period.

His Dem opponent, former state Sen. Pat Kreitlow, D-Chippewa Falls, had $436,417 cash on hand after raising $24,038 and spending $38,447.

Meanwhile, Mark Pocan, D-Madison, raised a little under what his chief rival did in the 2nd CD primary race but maintained a warchest more than four times bigger than that of Kelda Roys.

Pocan's FEC pre-primary report showed him raising raising $60,143 and spending $241,135. He had a warchest of $272,922.

Fellow Madison state Rep. Roys reported $61,519 raised, $185,278 spent and $66,362 cash on hand earlier in the week.

They are in a four-way Dem primary on Aug. 14. The winner advances to meet Mt. Horeb Republican Chad Lee in November for the seat now held by U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin.

And in the 3rd CD, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind, D-La Crosse, reported raising $17,556 and spending $97,564 for a final cash balance of $773,717.

Former DVA Secretary Ray Boland raised $10,001, but spent only $11,173 and had just $9,470 cash on hand.

Reports were due to the FEC by Thursday.
