Most of Tammy Baldwin’s Campaign Cash Came From Out of State

Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is in the fight of her political life this year, and she’s relying on deep-pocketed donors from America’s coasts to finance her campaign, according to a new report.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that a staggering 60 percent of Baldwin’s itemized campaign contributions came from outside of Wisconsin.

Baldwin’s campaign, which reports more than $20 million in total receipts, has hauled in contributions from nearly 7,800 Californians totaling $1,753,366 while 1,400 New Yorkers have added $1,420,487 to her coffers this cycle. People in Illinois have given $630,000 while $570,000 more came from backers in Massachusetts.

Individuals who live in Washington, D.C., Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Maryland added a combined $1.8 million to Baldwin’s campaign, records show.

Baldwin’s opponent, registered nurse Leah Vukmir (R-WI), has raised nearly 70 percent of her campaign funds from Wisconsin donors.

A recent poll showed an incredibly close race in Wisconsin: Baldwin led Vukmir 49-47, according to a Marquette University Law School poll, well within the poll’s margin of error.
